Excellent course. I particularly like the way Debra keeps the participants involved throughout.

The course and this instructor should be part of residency programs. I know that I have saved or will make tens of thousands of dollars as a result of this knowledge. I do my own coding and wonder how much money I lost before this class. She was great!
