Attended: Photoshop: Graphic Design

This is the worst class I've taken. Save your money and go to another vendor for this type of class. I'll just provide some examples of why the bad review. First of, the classroom was 82 degrees. The AC was broken and according to the director of that department they would work as quickly as possible to fix it. Two weeks later AC was still broken. Last email I received from the director asked if the fans that were provided help. No, they did not. Never heard from him again after that. I stopped going after the 5th week. It was a 8 week class. Next, it seemed to me that the instructor knew very little or just enough about Photoshop to "teach" this class. He didn't even bother discussing the user interface, tools, menu bars, etc. There was no structure to the class and he went from one topic to another. Every class I attended he tried to manipulate images in order to show how tools worked but those attempts failed miserably. The last class I attended after trying to blend two images together using either the blur or eraser tool (can't even remember!) and after 5 or ten minutes of being unable to, he decided to show us how to use 3D. Even though 3D is fun, everyone was lost and asking why we went to 3D. I feel like most people in that class wanted to learn how to remove someone from a picture, retouch a picture, use a clipping mask, etc. In any case, it felt like he moved on to 3D to confuse everyone and ignore the fact that he couldn't figure out what he wanted to do before. I spent 5 weeks, 4 hours each session and I can honestly say that I learned 3 new things. It was definitely not worth my time.
