  • September 19th, 2019 -

    I would have appreciated audio or video content. But it was good.

  • September 15th, 2019 -

    I carry a license to practice Architecture in Virginia and have run a successful firm since 2006. The highest praise I can give is that I firmly believe after taking this course that all architects should have to take a similar course before obtaining a license. The A.R.E does not cover most of what this course does.

    Process was very simple to use. Doing this at your own pace was perfect. Some questions were in line and not really set up as a trick question as some tests are structured.

    Informative and easy to navigate

    well done

  • February 18th, 2017 -

    This was a very easy and convenient way to prepare for the test.

  • February 7th, 2017 -

    this helps a lot to bring you up to date with all rules and regulations

  • January 20th, 2017 -

    I found the course pretty diverse and informative, well put together and will recommend it to anyone attempting to get their contractors license

  • August 13th, 2019 -

    A lot of info

  • August 5th, 2019 -

    Helped with a lot of information

  • July 15th, 2019 -

    Would be better if short informative videos and examples are added on this course.

  • May 11th, 2019 -

    I would increase the number of questions throughout. The questions are the key to success.

  • March 26th, 2019 -

    you should be able to pick up where you left off if you stop and start. I could not figure it out if it was available

  • March 23rd, 2019 -

    Some typos

  • March 13th, 2019 -

    I think the course is very good, however, I learn better if I have audio training vs. just written instruction. Would have loved audio to go along with the written text.

  • February 21st, 2019 -

    there was a lot left out of the course that was is the practice exams.

  • February 18th, 2019 -

    Many but not nearly all of the questions on the practice exams covered in the course.

  • February 13th, 2019 -

    Would provide information where to look and how to answer those I got wrong on the quizzes.

  • February 13th, 2019 -

    Training was fell developed, insightful and to the point.

  • January 26th, 2019 -

    Very good course.

  • November 29th, 2018 -

    Some trouble loading certain sections. Minor spelling mistakes. The practice tests were very helpful, but they should make it clear you need the book to take them. Overall a great experience.

  • September 9th, 2018 -

    Too long

  • August 23rd, 2018 -

    A few mistake in the test including ACP question

  • August 21st, 2018 -

    re read your practice test. 1 question about depreciation is either worded badly or marking correct answer wrong. Another had some messed up wording or incorrectly spelled words.

  • August 3rd, 2018 -

    Good reference materials and practice quizs

  • July 21st, 2018 -

    Those videos are a waste of time and should be left out.

  • June 29th, 2018 -

    Simple to follow

  • March 24th, 2018 -

    The videos at the end of each section were useless. All they did was read to me the summary slide that I had just read.

  • March 19th, 2018 -

    Material covered did not cover much of the practice quiz. I felt ill equipped when taking them for the first time. This was most noticed on quiz 1.

  • December 21st, 2017 -

    The study material needs to be direct with the exam.. There was several items on the test that wasn't on the study material

  • December 13th, 2017 -

    don't think the slides covered all the info needed to pass practice quizes

  • August 19th, 2017 -

    Need to spend more time on accounting and financial items if this many questions on the quiz will occur

  • July 27th, 2017 -

    need to clarify the the 1 is an I on the I9 vs 1099 ? it looks like a trick otherwise very well done

  • July 10th, 2017 -

    I have yet to take the test, so I don't know the outcome. However the course was challenging and supportive. There are a few ambiguities that I believe will help the overall course with regard to practice test questions.

  • April 18th, 2017 -

    very educational and helped me remember some things i had forgot

  • March 20th, 2017 -

    Course is fine. I believe the content should be updated as questions that are asked are not info that business owners or anyone would always know the answer to

  • February 10th, 2017 -

    This course was difficult in that the questions on the tests were not covered amply during the sessions. Most of the questions involved material not covered in the class and required extensive book research.

  • January 20th, 2017 -

    This is a good class. The book helps a lot

  • July 14th, 2019 -

    More automation would make the class more easier to follow.

  • February 24th, 2019 -

    online course content did not prepare me for the practice tests.

  • February 13th, 2019 -

    some of the testing content was not discussed. also the 8 hour course should follow the book so we can find content applicable

  • January 10th, 2019 -

    Many of the questions on the quiz are not apparent in the NASCLA book. Reviewing them in more detail in the sections would be helpful to passing the quizzes at the end of the course.

  • December 31st, 2018 -

    The course was very easy to follow but the quizzes at the end of the whole thing were way too hard and not accurately representative of the course itself. The answers to numerous questions were not found in my book, nor in the lessons. There are far too many mathematical questions as well. I wanted to be tested on what I actually read about. I'm a straight A student and had trouble with this.

  • November 20th, 2018 -

    The material slides were acceptable, the video content was very poor, the quizzes asked questions not given in the slides, the first two quines did not give reference where the questions came from or the answers were located. Like a sucker punch.

  • July 10th, 2018 -

    Questions are a bit confusing and not taken straight from book.

  • June 21st, 2018 -

    Some questions on quizzes were very vague. Wording was difficult to understand on some.

  • May 24th, 2018 -

    A lot of information missing from the slides that was in the quizzes.

  • May 2nd, 2018 -

    several questions had no wrong answer. a couple of the given answers were not fully supported by nascla book (other answers had better support) example; question 4 on the 2nd or 3rd quiz. each possible answer is correct and none of them is more correct than the others. A,B,C,and D, are all listed under "DETERMINING ESTIMATED COST" on pages 7-3 and 7-4 of the nascla book

  • April 8th, 2018 -

    Some of the questions have the wrong answers marked correct according to your book.

  • August 19th, 2017 -

    contractor guide book is very difficult to find information in; things are not categorized well.

  • August 16th, 2017 -

    Course lessons too easy in comparison to the practice quiz questions. Quiz questions were much more difficult than the lessons.

  • March 18th, 2017 -

    Many of the Quiz questions were not covered in the on line course material.

  • March 10th, 2017 -

    Test questions were confusing, didn't match the content in the book or had duplicate right answers.
