The online presentations are of real quality, plus you get the added bonus of downloading the spoken side of it onto your iPod which for me was invaluable... I could do 45 minutes revision on the train in the mornings on the way to work.
Had a great time learning and training with HFE. All learning materials are great with all the information you need. The app with the digital versions is even better if you get free time to read them at work.
If you're thinking off enrolling onto a course with HFE then DO IT! Definitely worth the money. Trust me you won't be disappointed!
I really enjoyed the course. Tim our teacher was really upbeat and kept it fun. There is a lot of information to get through over the first weekend. Dani was my tutor and she was available whenever I needed help and was always able to answer my questions.
