The course materials are outstanding and the instructor was friendly, focused and had command of the course.

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

Overall good experience considering the situation we are all in. Could use more hands on experience
