This would have cut a great deal of time off of my learning curve if it was available when I started.Woody Sanford
It's really a challenge to create a course that neither moves along with the material too fast or too slow. This one moved along at a very pleasing pace. I never felt lost because it was going too fast or bored because it was going slow.Billy Sheahan
Very informative and thoroughly explained. Alex is a great teacher.
