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

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

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.
