Not much study. . . 9 days to cover what decent classes take most of a year to examine. . .

Also, after a very brief scan, the material does not reflect current cobol correctly. . .

I have worked with some "programmers" that couldn't learn COBOL in 9 years. I taught COBOL at a community college 1 time, I told some of the students they should switch to liberal arts, the administration was not happy with my advise which is why I only taught once.
