This course was an excellent overview and I like Carrie's no-nonsense style. She gave a detailed overview of Beaver Builder settings and valuable details about the most important modules. I have been using BB for several months and picked up lots of great tips and techniques. The only thing missing was a demo of building a page from scratch using rows, columns and the various modules and tweaking colors, spacing etc. so we can see BB in action.

This course is very disappointing. It is a brief overview of select modules within BB The teacher moves the mouse around so fast and mentions that certain things exist, that you only get a hint of what's possible in this powerful tool. It never shows an example of how to build a page or how to use spaces, padding, or any basic option to build your first page.
