Student Reviews

I wrapped a real life experience around the assignments and it was a tremendous learning experience! I now have no problem participating actively in meetings dealing with XML subject matter (either on a business or technical level). In all, I rate the XML course 9.5 out of 10.
You learn when you want, you receive help promptly, and you may be sure that your queries will be answered always. Excellent materials, easy to understand even for people like me with poor English.
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!
