Very informative. I found out the answer to my question for my project that I was wondering about within the first 30% of the class material. Then I started programming my real world project and flipping back and forth between the class material and my real world project. Helped to re-integrate the material covered.
Thanks, this has been very helpful to me. I have gone to the AB class for pv plus. Its a great class but i can learn only so much at a time. Your class gave me the ability to go back to sections to review.
I wanted to learn to program AB HMI's and this course worked great. Everything is there and you can review whatever and whenever you need. Thanks Shawn
