    Hi Anita, I just finished course #4. It was truly amazing. You explained everything clearly and easily. Although I am using Macbook Pro but I can still manage. I think I am becoming more and more obsessed with sketchup. I really wanted to thank you for your great help and your courses will definitely help me in building up my business. I cant wait to proceed with the other courses especially “Creating Window Treatment Elevation” course. I am so excited and so happy. Again, many thanks Anita.

    Best regards, Azza
