  • Laverne Stephens
    Laverne Stephens United States of America I learned a lot from this course. Many of my misconceptions have been 'straightened out'. I recommend this course to others. The only thing I didn't like was the quality of the screen shots. They were blurred and hard to see when the instructor's screen (not presentation slides) was being shown. 2015-12-28 15:12:20
