Hilda Sendyk's [Excel] class was refreshingly good. She's an excellent teacher, knowledgeable and articulate, and put together an excellent set of examples to walk us through the concepts. Teaching anything related to computers is notoriously difficult – partly because experts tend to be lousy teachers, partly because of the inevitable need to accommodate a range of experience levels within the class, and partly because at any given moment at least one student is having some kind of technical problem that bogs everyone down. So in my book Hilda gets double credit. I not only stayed wide awake, but learned way more than I expected to and came away with a lot of practical stuff that I can start applying next week.
