    Loved that we covered a lot of different tools within Photoshop and that I was given the opportunity to try my hand at doing the same things that Laura walked though. I feel like this goes a long way toward helping you remember the various commands, etc. Also appreciated the PDF with all the keyboard shortcuts and the fact that I was able to ask questions as we went along.
