Well done to BASI, it was a great system to learn.

Nothing to add everthing was perfect

Maybe the course could be scheduled as 3 days a week for 4 months, instead 4 days a week for 3 months

...But except that the whole course in general is beneficial.

I would have preferred that the handouts were not photocopied. The pictures are not that clear and especially in the cadillac book where sometimes the spring is invisible so you don't know if it is bottom or top loaded because of the fact that the book is photocopied and is all in black and white. The photocopy of the book has removed some details. And also, the books need updating. For example, in the reformer book we have a SERIES whereas in the study guide it was a GROUP. so it was a bit misleading to having to correct the books all the time. I was expecting at least original books that are up to date. But except that the whole course in general is beneficial.
