I really liked the hands-on attributes of the class. Illustrator is an amazing tool, you just have to learn how to use it. My instructor was great. She was very flexible to my learning needs.

Webucator exceeded my expectations. The coursework was very thorough and my instructor was very knowlegeable. I would highly recommend their training courses.

This class was perfect for me. I have had a few months developing in Silverlight to get me going before the class. This class filled in gaps of my knowledge and brought me up to speed in areas that I was kind of on the wrong track.
