There was a very good atmosphere, every lecture was of a high standard. The organization with the e-class is excellent, your feedback to issues and problems as well. The most important is the difference I see in relation to how I started the first day and where I am at the moment on the knowledge, familiarity with Excel, the organization and the structure of a forecast model. It was by far the best seminar I have attended so far in terms of subject matter and specialization. I think it is a milestone along the way for each of us whether we have worked on similar models in the past or started from scratch.
