Fantastic instructors! The one I had was knowledgeable, professional and caring. He insured that every student's questions were answered in a manner that they understood. The environment set by the instructor made this one of my best learning experiences in my life!

Great way to get that extra edge in formula and parameter setting functionality - this should be required training for anyone using Crystal!
