Great course! Great Price! I appreciated the well put together guide, puzzles and test exams. All the materials helped prepare me for the State Exam. The ability to log on and off and access the materials for 30 days is great for busy people. The course cost is one of ths most reasonable out there. Highly Recommend!Steve M.
