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.


Attended: Outlook Efficiency Techniques 2007-2010

What a fun way to learn! Karen incorporated laughter into the curriculum and helped me unleash my skills. Can't wait to take it again. Thanks!


Attended: Photoshop Essentials

This was really nice boot camp to me. I learned a lot of basic menu and concept of photoshoto, which were much more than I originally expected. The course had just a few people and I could ask any kind of questions and the pace of learing is pretty confortable. recommended!
