I appreciated that we started with the basics. I've just begun dabbling in GA, so it was nice to have time dedicated to explaining some of the core functionality and highlighting a few easily overlooked features before diving into more complex topics...some of the instruction required a bit of a technical explanation, the trainer did a great job simply explaining everything.
