Dr. Spade has a very practical way of explaining these concepts, without confusion. Much detail is provided and the process is smooth. Thanks Doc.

This was a waste of time . Please put the tables on each slide if you expect us to follow what you are saying.

This was awful. The instructor is rattling off numbers and asking us to answer questions which refer to tables which we can't see because they are not posted. I don't know about you, but I can't visualize a table of new data for a few seconds and then answer questions on the data within a platform which is supposed to teaching a new concept. He seems like a knowledgeable man but this was not well thought out.
