Attended: SPSS Essentials

My only suggestion would be that the instructor distribute something in writing to correspond with the basic points covered. It is pretty much impossible to take notes during the session because it is so fast moving. Very hard to retain any of the instructions. If he would distribute basic written instructions on what he covers, the student could come away with something that they could continue to work with after the course. For this reason the course is very overpriced for what you get from it.


Attended: Advanced PowerPoint 2007-2010

Anonymous gave this class 5 out of 5 CourseHorse stars.


Attended: Excel 2007-2010

Great teacher, and pace was excellent.


Attended: Excel 2013

I'm really happy with this class, I think it was well structured in terms of the assigned tasks and I was properly assisted by the teacher in each of the opportunities I demanded. This is a very useful course. Thanks


Attended: Advanced Excel Power Users 2010

I thought this class was a wonderful overview of ways to improve your efficiency in using excel and touched upon some Macros and match index examples at the end. The teacher was good and it was only me and one other person so we were able to ask a lot of questions.
