Highlight Video
Speaker was excellent and really broke down the components for neck making it easier to understand. I also enjoyed all of the lab components and how frequent we were able to break for lab.

I liked the mix of lab and lecture so it broke up the day.
I liked the Hands-On lab time because that's how I learn. I was able to take notes with the packet provided which followed well with the PowerPoint presentation.
