Is the Advanced Evidence Analysis Practicum course right for you?

Are you trying to decide if you would like to take the Advanced Evidence Analysis Practicum course at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy? Registration opens today so I thought I would share some reviews from those who have taken the course to help you decide if it is for you. 

This hands-on course is an opportunity for advanced genealogists to put their research skills into practice. Participants work on five complex genealogical research problems—a new one each day. Each case requires careful evidence evaluation and/or additional research to solve. The objective is to give each student experience in conducting research on complex problems, analyzing and correlating evidence, and reaching conclusions.
The cases are all brand new for 2014 and you can read about the instructors here.
To give perspective on the Advanced Evidence Analysis Practicum course here are some reviews from past participants:

Participants in this practicum will work individually on the cases to analyze documents and evidence provided, and also conduct research online and at the Family History Library. The research problems will be varied, offering students the challenge of stretching their mind and skills in directions that their research may not normally take them. The class will meet with the expert instructor to compare strategies and methodologies used, discuss difficulties encountered, and receive guidance on the case solution. Students will learn from each other as well as the instructors. This course is designed for advanced genealogists who have sufficient experience and education to work on complex genealogical problems.
