  • February 15th, 2017 -

    Very helpful lots of information to aid with decision making.

  • January 28th, 2017 -

    The course was organized and easy to follow, yet very challenging. I learned a great deal from taking the course.

  • June 5th, 2019 -

    It would've been nice for it to be offered in English and Spanish. I did appreciate that I was able to retake assessments as many times as I needed in order to pass. The chapters were very informative.

  • May 2nd, 2019 -

    The lessons were spot on. The practice test had the same exact question more than once. I doubt that was on purpose.

  • April 25th, 2019 -

    Decent course

  • July 8th, 2018 -

    The course should not be offered without the books. I ended up doing the upgrade because you will need those references for the test and they would help tremendously with the course quizzes.

  • June 26th, 2018 -

    I do not know how well prepared I am compared to other courses/programs. I do appreciate that the review of the quizzes gives the chater of the question. I feel this program equipped me to use the NASCLA book expeditiously.

  • March 15th, 2018 -

    Accessibility to reference material; formulas etc, not readily explained.

  • May 23rd, 2017 -

    Decent course, needs to be updated in some areas to current.

  • March 25th, 2017 -

    i think there are 2 incorrect test answers in th quiz 3 that i took

  • March 24th, 2017 -

    The table on one of the questions in practice test #3 did not load even though when I returned to the page several times (to force it to reload).

  • January 23rd, 2017 -

    THERE WAS ONE ANSWER 500 THAT WAS CORRECT BUT MARKED WRONG

  • March 6th, 2019 -

    Course should provide more questions at the end of each section to better prepare the student for the practice test.

  • January 14th, 2019 -

    I would prefer more video instruction.

  • December 13th, 2018 -

    some quiz were obviously wrong, please check.

  • May 22nd, 2018 -

    The course was good overall. A lot of the questions on the quizzes did not match up with the book I bought that is supposed to go with my state test.

  • May 16th, 2018 -

    The course did not cover everything that was on the three quizzes.

  • July 11th, 2017 -

    More accounting questions on the quizzes than the course prepared me for
