Student Reviews

The course was outstanding and will impact my job and my career. Best instruction I have received to date on XML and related technologies. Looking forward to continuing with your program.
Not even in college, earning my degree in Software Engineering, did I have an XML course as detailed as this one. Before this, the majority of my XML training has been an independent-study style. Although this class was similar, it was so nice to have a human being to reach out to for guidance. You have helped a lot, by being understanding, genuine, helpful and available.
I really enjoyed this class. The pace of this class was perfect for me. I was able to work through the sections after a long day at work and not go crazy. Susan was always very helpful whenever I contacted her. I enjoyed working through all the assignments — they kept me challenged.
Excellent content and assignments that build on your knowledge, reinforce, and then expand. Challenging assignments with instructor support to assist you. Best training site I have found on the Internet!
