This course was great and really helped me to get re-acquainted with the software. I'm now very comfortable with the interface and feel that I can extend what I have learned to suit my needs. The instructor was well versed in all aspects of the program and was able to answer all of my questions. He made the experience very straightforward and enjoyable. Amanda
