Some responses to the class
I thought the class was great. Aside from the fact that anything you do is 1st class, It was very straight forward, to the point and easy to follow. I rarely had to take notes except to keep the numbers straight
Thanks for everything, Dave, Greensboro, NC.
I am already successfully incorporating into my work some of the tips I received in your class. I am grateful for the time savings to be realized.
