Excellent instructor. This class provided me with the training that I really needed and wanted to create real life applications. The pace of the class is perfect - not too slow, not too fast. I highly recommend this class for people who want .NET training.

Although I attended the class remotely, I felt like I was in the classroom with the instructor. The instructor did an outstanding job providing examples from his own work experiences and relating functionality to VB basic with which I had familiarity. It was a very rewarding experience.
