I just finished teaching this to some of our school district staff. Very well written and illustrated. I will be using this course again when I teach this summer.

Very good screen shots in these manuals. This course was a little pedantic for me. Students did not "create" alot that took them from start to finish. They seemed a little bored with all the techniques... I think IF should be in a level 2, not in a Level 1.

Great material. Easy to teach. I teach FastCourse material in 6 to 8 hour format. The last Chapter on Charting may be a little too much from truly beginner students.

I love the hands on exercise format of these FastCourse series of books. It makes my job much easier and the students respond well. The hands on exercises are basically step by step exercises that I go through on a projeced screen with the students.
