Great tutorial! I think it's important for people to remember that this isn't a personal lesson. It's a tutorial created with absolute beginners and above in mind.

The pace is painful. Gary's slowness made it hard for me to follow along. I felt like I had to concentrate more on trying to concentrate than actually learning this application. The repetitiveness felt unnecessary and distracting.
That said, when you get to the meat of this tutorial, there is some useful information to be learned.

I thoroughly enjoyed Gary's performance and explanations of the basics of Numbers 09. Even though many aspects of Numbers are similar to Pages and Keynote applications with which I am familiar, Mr Atkins very nicely detailed those features specific to Numbers.
One thing I would have liked to see was a bit more 'advanced' functions of the program. I wish Gary worked with a few other templets and explained some of the formulas that are commonly used. Other than that, I am very glad I purchased this training program. Thank you.
I look forward to a new iteration of iWork in the near future and MacProVideo's tutorials.

Good information but Gary Atkins makes this tutorial unbearable to watch. The tutorial length would have been half as long if he didn't speak so slowly and ... pause between ... almost every ... other word. I wish I could have watched it at double speed, it would have saved me an hour of my life and quelled the urge to shoot myself in the face.

Excellent tutorial. Sufficiently dumbed-down for a spreadsheet novice like me. I would like to see some advanced features of Numbers covered in a subsequent tutorial like "Look-Ups".
Usual MPV high standard - well done to Gary and everyone else involved.

Great tutorial, very easy to follow and take in. From never having used a spread sheet to feeling confident that I can make my own. Thanks

Tutorial went through everything from every tool and formatting option to all the multiple ways to input and view data. Thought this was an excellent core video for Numbers. This gave me a great foundation for the basics and feel that I can explore the more complex spreadsheets without guessing every step of the way :)
