Do you use IBM computers?
Yes. All of our machines are IBM-PCs and IBM compatibles.
Is it possible to take both classes at the same time?
No. We encourage students to take one course at a time so that they may better absorb the material and more quickly acquire their new skills.

Absolutely. Most students choose this option and find it to be a doable, sensible approach.
