I've been trying to persuade them to purchase it themselves, as I believe it to be an excellent training tool, and the best instructional CD on this subject to date by far! Not only is it easy to follow and presented clearly, but it is also a bargain."Joe Doyle Vista Community College, Berkeley, CA
