    The instructor was very knowledgeable in the subject matter and did a good job getting as much of the material across as possible. There were a few times got a little off topic but as someone whose taught before I know that can be hard to avoid sometimes. All in all good job and I would attend another class in the future if given the chance.

    The class was a lot of information to take in during the one week. I feel like I need to study more on my own before I try to take the test. The Instrustor was great and knew what to teach and what other subjects needed to be covered outside of the book. A lot of link and other videos and blog posts to read. Josh was overall a great teacher.
