More information was presented than could be possibly practiced, but I would rather be exposed to more than conversely. Great Class!

I have never used a program like this in my life and learning something like this is very difficult for me. CATI has been very friendly with helping me. Thank you to everyone. You have changed my life. I still call with questions, but with everything this program can do I'm sure I will have more.
