"I have found the CyberLearning online courses to be extremely easy and
useful. I liked pre-course self-assessment and IT books online and available 24/7. The course screens were interactive and made me feel as if I was in the application itself. The site looks and feels very professional. The list of courses is huge. It includes something for almost everyone. I find this to be a very worthy cause." Received on Fri Dec 08 2000 - 16:36:54 CST
