Student FeedBack

This was one of the best online courses I've taken. I do not feel as though I would have had a better
experience in a classroom. Excellent job to the instructor.

(101 Introduction to Construction Estimating)

This is the one course that I will use daily at my job. Thanks for finally helping me understand how
to actually use the correct formulas to get the right results!!

(102 Essential Construction Math)

Great class and instructor. I am new to reading blueprints and this class exceeded the expectations I had
going into it. I wish I had a Bob (instructor) for my back pocket. . The pace and content were good for the
subject mater being covered. I liked how the material came out weekly versus at ones own pace
(time to digest, understand, review).
(103 Construction Blueprint Reading)

I liked professor Zimmerman and his way of teaching also his input into the discussions.
(105 Estimating and Bidding 1)

The homeworks are really helpful and the most realistic in my view. Give me the most knowledge
and practice.
(106 Estimating and Bidding 2)

The online lectures are in my opinion the greatest strength.
(107 Construction Materials and Processes)

What Students are Saying (200 Series)

Thank you David for all your instructions. Your wrapups after each Module gave me great insight. I believe
 this course has made me a better person in communication in all areas of my life.

(202 Oral and Written Communications)

(I) will use the things I learned on site
(203 Construction Problem Solving and Decision Making)

The instructor was great, not only at being involved, but being able to show a sense of humor from time
to time. I think that helps keep us involved in the discussions.
(205 Planning and Scheduling)

I think the instructor is very well organized and participates in each weekly wrap up.
(206 Cost Awareness and Production Control)
