Class was too fast for a beginner. Too much time for breaks and unsupervised time not reviewing or practicing anything. No material or support provided to practice at home.

Shaun C.

Attended: Photoshop Essentials (For Mac)
The class was good. The class was just the right size of people for the teacher to answer any questions that might pop up. It could go into more depth on the platform. That would be good if it was 3 days or went to 7pm to cover more.
