One of the best classes I've taken. I wish this was my Java class during college!

The content was comprehensive and even though I have basic SQL knowledge, I was able to learn new techniques to make my SQL statements more efficient.

It was a wonderful use of time. It felt as if the instructor was in the room, offering one-on-one personal instruction. I feel like I met my main goal...that I can now develop my own, polished business presentation.
