Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
