think one of Ernest's best teaching qualities is his enthusiasm.
He is very good at getting students invested in what they
are doing and motivating them to work harder to reach their
goals. He is a good roll model by really knowing the material
himself. He also makes sure he uses his time wisely within
class time and teaches the full period while other instructors
end early and skip teaching opportunities. Ernest even willingly
extends class time if students desire extended learning. He
is quick to answer emails and questions outside class time
as well. I would definitely recommend Ernest to any of my
colleagues and friends"
feel the 2373B "Programming with Visual Basic .NET"
class was a 'must' for myself, a VB 6.0 programmer that
needed to update my skills to prepare for projects that
will use VB.NET. I'm very pleased with the course content,
but benefited mostly from the professional programming knowledge
that Dr. Bonat passed along to all of us in the class. I
plan to take other course offerings from Dr. Bonat that
cover other aspects of Microsoft .NET"

"I would recommend Ernest's VB .NET class to all the
developers new to .NET. I enjoyed your class, learn a lot
and four hours didn't seem long at all"
am very well satisfied with the job you did teaching the 2373B
Visual Basic.NET class for PCC. As the least experienced member
of the class I needed special handling with some supplemental
SW. You helped me there by downloading the resource kit and
the Sql engine and burning these on a CD for me. In the case
of the MSDE you stuck with me until I got it installed correctly.
Without that dedication I wouldn’t have been able to
do the database exercises from home. Ironically I’m
now assigned to do an ADO application for the 233B class I
enrolled in subsequent to yours. So far I’m acing my
current class and I feel it is a positive testimonial to the
teaching performance you delivered in your class. I’m
now in a more academic environment, so I appreciate more,
the “real life” experience that you also injected
into your class. I would be happy to be a student in your
Having said that, I’m still between jobs. The job-training
agency I belong to has only resources remaining to fund the
CIS credit classes. With the choice between funding your next
class from my pocket or taking a funded CIS credit class,
I’ll probably defect. Note that this is a financial
choice rather than a reflection on you as an instructor.
I hold you in high regard, and I wish you would in both your
career and your role as a VB Instructor"
feel very fortunate in having taken a Visual Basic .NET class
from you. Not only did you fulfill the requirements of the
class in Visual Basic.NET as stated by Microsoft, but you
also taught us students VB.NET techniques, strategies and
"best practices" that are normally learned while
on the job. That helped me to step outside of the box. Thank-you"
