    Kerry DuPont United States of America This was a good course for a beginner such as myself. He did speak quickly but he repeated the information often and the visual helped as well. It did seem that the quiz asked a few things that I didn't see in the videos and I wonder if I missed something, however it was fairly common sense and straightforward web site and teaching. Thank you! 2015-05-12 00:05:18
