Some feedback I've received about this tutorial:

"Your tutorials are so comprehensive, informative and easy to follow that I can’t think of anything else I would need to know to start serious editing.

Thanks so much for making the tutorials available."- Rob M.

"Although I have been using Final Cut Pro for about a year, this is one of the best Final Cut Pro tutorials I have encountered. I watched the entire series in one sitting! What I especially liked was that I could pause the lesson and experiment/practice on my own files as I followed along with your tutorials.

I would highly recommend this to anyone starting to use Final Cut Pro X. Great job!!!" - Frank P.

"I found nuggets in almost every lesson that filled in a gap (pun intended) or made the magnetic timeline make a lot more sense. The lessons were all easy to digest and it really beat the heck out of reading the manual." - Paul A.

"I think I have communicated this to you before but your tutorials are excellent. They are clear, concise and easy to follow and understand." - Samuel K.
