Attended: Excel 2010 - Level 3

The instructor was helpful and engaging. The class was well designed and I walked out with a lot of new tricks to improve my work with excel.


Attended: Excel 2010 - Level 2

Although I already had a base of knowledge of Excel at the intermediate level, I picked up a number of new skills that will really help me on a number of projects. The course was very useful and will be beneficial to my work going forward.


Attended: Grammar Skills

Although the teacher was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and specifically asked each student what they wanted to focus on, she frequently got off track. As a result I did not get nearly as much as I had expected- definitely not $275 worth! I did however get a short list of useful resources which the teacher promptly emailed to me. Given the hefty price of this course I would not recommend it. I think you would get more by doing free grammar activities online.
