Intense, suitable for fast learners with no time Review by Meowzer
1. Do you find the course meet your expectation?
2. Do you find the trainer knowledgeable in this subject?
3. How do you find the training environment
Since this is a one-day course, it's very intense. There's short practices after each module, but don't expect many exercises or practices. I found it really helpful though, because I don't have the time to spare for two or three day courses.

Given how fast-paced it is, having a really small class of 3-4 people is the best. Any bigger class size and it won't be effective at all. I hope class sizes are kept to this small number!

For people who are proficient in using their computers and are fast learners.

If you miss out on anything, make a note to clarify with the teacher after class, because he won't have the time to walk you through. He usually ends class a little earlier than 5pm, probably for this purpose. (Posted on 10/1/2016)
