This course is an excellent source of information for every level of programmer. It has satisfactorily covered all the relevant topics with code examples for better understanding.

By Donna Mike

I was introduced to this by my tutor. I wanted something with which I can practice all the concepts in a detailed manner. This COBOL course is very well explained with the stepping stones of information.

By Greg Hail

I am fairly satisfied with learning through this course. It is a good course for beginners, but somewhere lacks in the expert area. Code examples are appropriate.
