    The class was useful and Scott was very knowledgeable about all things PowerPoint. Unfortunately, my enjoyment of the class was affected by his rudeness toward some of his students.

Question from Ann O.
Hello, Can i bring a mac laptop to take the course?
Answer from Lovely Gail C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
The school will provide computers for you to use. However, you are more than welcome to bring one if you feel more comfortable using your own. If you are bringing your own computer, notify the school ahead of time so they can load the necessary files onto your computer. The class is taught on a PC, but students can attend the class and work on a Mac. Please note that the instructor will work on a PC and there will be differences as well as the manual provided is geared for PC users.
