I just wanted to let BDA know that Brendan presented a wonderful class. He is by far the best instructor I've seen. He went at the perfect pace, tailored the class to fit the needs of the attendees, had a sense of humor, was easy to follow, and thoroughly explained things in a way that was easy to understand. I learned so much in two short days!KeithRead All Comments
