I completed the course and I was very impressed. I have listed a few points of feedback below:
- Each section is extremely detailed and gives you very well-explained tutorials on how to complete a variety of different tasks using the software.
- There is a good blend of both video tutorials and written instructions to maintain reader interest.
- The layout of the course is easy to follow – each section has a smooth transition to the next without being too complicated to navigate.
- The fact that the pass mark for each section of the course is 100%. This enables anyone completing the course to work back through and figure out which part they may have missed of misunderstood
