I really enjoyed my time at London Software Training, Riham was a fantastic teacher and generally a lovely person. You learn so much faster when you are taught individually, so I would highly recommend this course to any beginner like me. Ben was kind enough to even show me the process he uses for designing his furniture. I may be back at some point in the future to learn Revit with Riham as she is an expert with this software. Thank you! :)
