Very please with the course. Found it useful as gained real life experience rather than just reading. Course was interactive and informative and flexible. Paul was very good and conducted the sessions very well with us all being very engaged. Woud definately recommend.
Venue was very cold, additional heaters had to be provided which was not ideal and the staff struggled to get the temperature up to an acceptable level. Other than that a good location. Brendan knows exactly how to get you prepared for CeMap, and I think the course was probably worth 10-15% on top of the mark I would achieve if I went the self taught route which could be the difference between a pass and fail. The tricky areas and pitfalls were all explained and how to avoid them and time and attention paid to the more complex areas and the ones which you don't come across in everyday practice. I'm probably being hyper critical but I was expecting a variety of learning methods to have been introduced to break the monotony of the text a d improve the understanding on different aspects of the course rather than just reading from a text book.
As a studying accademy it should have the ability to allow students into the building before 08:45 and flexibility to be able to stay after 18:00, as not all students are staying at a near by hotel and they may prefer to either come earlier or stay later to do some strudying. Not being able to do so, it means that it has a negative impact to the students' studying/revision time.
