    This is a well organised, well presented, well paced course. It's very informative. Our questions are answered promptly on the discussion pages. It has 2 fantastic complementary features: Google Earth Tour and Build Your Own Earth. Brilliant.

  • IT TRAINING FOR U is an IT software training institute in Hyderabad.I have joined the institute for java Classes and they told me that they will complete the course in 3 months maximum and I joined the institute trusting their words but to be frank enough the course took around 5-6 months to be completed.Coming to the teaching, the faculty is experienced enough and they sometimes irritate you with the slowest teaching ever you had in your life.However teaching is good but sometimes just for the simple topic they teach you for around 2 hours.Administration guys are good enough they take care of the things that should be available in the institute.
