The class was good, but at times the pace did seem a bit fast to actually try to remember some of the information.

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth

This was effective way to provide a ton of information in a short time period.

The instructor really took his time and made sure I was able to understand the concepts.

Very good couse and again we would like to see more videos on removing FRUs
