Hi MumYou know, I think if you only just started your course (and it is a good course) you should go with it for now!
There are many, many techniques that people use and everyone believes their's is the right one. As long as you are not doing any damage, understand what you are doing any why and get good results, the technique is right.
If you start questioning at this early stage you will just get confused. Give your teacher a chance. If your results aren't good, try to solve it woth your teacher. If it's still horribly wrong, come back on here.
For the trainers on here, think about it!!
I would never go against what my tutor is teaching me, i have more respect than that but at the end of the day it doesn't mean that the way we are taught is the best way of doing things.
Every tutor, college, academy teach differently.
I know my tutor personally and if i get any tips or advice for fellow geeks i know i could discuss any of them with her and get her opinion too.
I totally understand where you are coming from but if someone can give me a tip or a piece of advice that will help me in my training or help me do a certain thing better then i would and do apperciate it.
Thank you for your input.
