Excellent class. Very clear presentation of the material by the instructor. Hands on exercises were
very helpful and provided true understanding of the material. Very satisfied, will look to take

Overall the course was a very good introduction to WPF. Having worked with WPF for some time, it really helped connect a lot of dots for me. It was definitely worth the time and expense. The video lectures were very well done and perfectly matched the student guide. The exercises offered a way to consolidate the lectures and were a good mix of hand-holding and free-form. For a three day course it was packed with information. I would definitely recommend this training to others seeking a formal introduction to WPF.
