    Very Informative
    This was my first opportunity to take a course like this and found all material very informative. I plan to review the course again as I am sure I missed a thing or two.

    Elmira is the best teacher and her lessons are really solid grounding material. I hope to see more of her courses advanced levels or new ones because they are always so constructive to everyday life.
