Course reviews

As always, phenomenal class, filled with treasures of tidbits that are superuseful. I keep coming back to Jason's classes, and even return to some of the ones I've initially taken to pick up additional material I may have missed the first time around. Because of this class, I no longer fear the sampler or simpler. I'm totally comfortable using them now. Thanks Jason! As always. :)
