It is not just one thing that sticks out to me, it is the overall experience you get at CCO" ● "How awesome the staff is and the quality of the products! The bubbling and highlighting technique." ● "oh you all KNOW! B & H !!! ● "Your company is more of a sharing / networking establishment, rather than a structured teaching forum. Though teaching is the end result, you and your staff make it fun to learn and think outside the box, as compared to the tried and true readin', writin' and 'rithmetic fashion of book learnin'. For that I and I'm sure a multitude of others are thankful."
