Testimonials from course participants
“The breadth of the material covered for the number of days was spot on. There was the right number of example problems to work through to drill the concepts into my head, but not too many that I was bored.”
“I found that the math portion of the course was very helpful with mixing up the lecture, getting people involved.”
