Summary and Final Thoughts


January 26, 2022
I was disappointed with this course because it was advertised as 'The only course you will need switching over from Windows to Mac. Towards the end of the course I realised 'Pages' was not included, and Pages happens to be the skill II most wanted to learn. I left a comment about it in Q & A, 2 weeks ago. If the tutor had replied to my comment I would have given a 4 star rating. Perhaps I have misunderstood something, but as far as I can see the advertisement is misleading.

Yes, I really enjoyed it and found it helpful as well as learnt a lot of things that I didn't yet know.
