Course Reviews

July 6th, 2018
Since I travel a lot for work it would be nice to offer an audio version of the course. Would have been a breeze to listen to segments of the course while driving.

March 9th, 2018
Some sections had a lot of grammatical errors that made it difficult to understand what I was reading. But, all in all, the course was easy to navigate, well put together, very informative.

March 1st, 2018
when giving the answer to the math part of the test it would be good if you would show the formula.

April 17th, 2018
Add more videos and less readings

November 13th, 2017
1.) when you give the answers for math questions.... show the work. 2.) Update your course...I watched videos where you were saying things like..."in 2012"...SERIOUSLY...5 YRS LATER. 3.) The guy reading was terrible. His cue cards were not written correctly and he would stop and pause at awkward places during his reading. 4.) The guy in the video must be the owner, otherwise why would you choose him to deliver the message? He is not very professional in his speech, he does not look attractive and his voice is not conducive to learning. MUST BE ALL EGO DRIVEN! Sad
