The practice exams, and the materials used were most useful for learning. In addition, the note section and instructors’ advice especially helped support me during my learning process. Overall, the course was very informative, and I would recommend it to friends and family.

The best part of this course for me is that allowed me to learn at my own pace. The videos and reading materials included in the training increased my knowledge and skills in the subject matter. My instructor helped me gauge my study hours keeping me on track prior to taking the final exam.

The best part of this course for me is that it was self-directed and that I could move at my own pace. The quizzes after each section were good practice. The objective was clear. The instructional materials increased my knowledge and skills on the subject matter. I liked how the e-book showed a progress bar, telling you how much more you had to go through it was encouraging to see the bar increase as I chunked out study hours.
