Bobby seems very knowledgeable and passionate about what he is presenting. He is very good at using real-life experiences to illustrate or clarify how some of these concepts can be implemented.

Bobby, I would like to say that even though I am not an engineer (and the math made me question my current occupation), I am really glad that I took this class. You have helped me to dissect and visualize some of the terms and concepts that were not tangible to me prior to this class.

The Reference Manual, Solutions Manual, notes, and the dedication is what I liked best about the program. Mr. Rauf is excellent.
