Hey everybody, I know this has come up before, but I want to get an updated view from some people who have taken classes at the www.gameinstitute.com. Post your opinion of how it went, which class it was, who your instructor was etc.

I took the "Game Mathmatics" class, taught by John De Goes. I thought that parts were rushed over. Very little of it actually had much bearing on game development (ie, it was a straight math class) until the very end, but that was actually alright with me. There was almost no activity in the forums.

All in all, it was a decent experience. I don''t know if I would take another one though.

Take care,
Bill

I am enrolled in the intro to C++ class currently. Someone else said a class was rushed that he took. I feel the same way. Also, although the advertisements claim that the class is also for beginners, don''t be fooled. You really have to know some C++ before ever taking this class. The chat rooms are not very useful because the instructor doesn''t even try to exercise any control on the discussions and everyone just talks about the particular games they are working on, not the class or the lesson for the week. You are probably better off buying one of the Premier Press books edited by Andre'' LaMothe.
