Holmes Emma
I`ve had the same instructor for both and I`ve learned more in a few days than I could learn by my own. The course goes at a pace which suits all users and the practice examples they use cover a lot of different techniques. So far I have completed 101 and 102 Adobe InDesign and 101 Adobe Illustrator, hoping to go and do the 201 later in this year.
