Day 1 of the course appeared to be "dummy" like and by lunchtime felt like the pace was far too slow. However, it could also be that because I, personally do a lot of data analysis; I happen to feel that way. The trainer however was very good. He was patient and his style of teaching could not be faulted. There was real structure and every session flowed from one section to the next. The book was also handy to have as it can always be easy to forgot what a process is / was.
Good basic introduction to using the tool. Pace of the course at points was a little slow, and whilst referencing the course book occasionally, as it was not used actively throughout the course, it made "making notes" on relevant parts difficult, so the book may not be referenced as much after the course.
The course was very good in providing an understanding of how Business objects works and how data can be manipulated to provide a more comprehensive analysis. Simon the trainer was excellent and was able to demonstrate the functions of business objects in a clear and concise manner.
