Great Course. Covered a lot of real estate items.

I'm a property manager so there was a ton of information in this class that I will probably never use.

October 31st, 2018
lots of typos or miswording. one question on a quiz didnt even have a question just choices for answer.

October 30th, 2018
Course seemed to be out of date and no relevant to actual real estate transactions. It was more like the exam to get the license than continuing education

October 30th, 2018
There was a fair amount of information that was not applicable to myself as a real estate agent, which is very frustrating. In addition, there were very many answers that have been updated or have new information that was not reflected in the course. Lastly, there were few questions on the end of section assessments that were missing the questions but had all the answers there.

October 31st, 2018
Some info was very informative, while some is factually inaccurate. With tweaking I would certainly refer this to my office.

Will NEVER take a course from this outfit again. Enjoyed it last year. Has evolved into a time consuming, unpleasant, experience. Can't and won't ever recommend it again. Whoever was responsible for changing the format from a learning experience to a timed trial did a great disservice to the program!

I have satisfactorily used this company to fulfill my continuing education requirements for a couple years now, however, sadly, I won't be using again. This is no longer At Your Own Pace. I am a fast reader, and I found the mandatory time required on each page to be very tedious and it took me much longer to complete the courses than in previous years. My husband decided to use McKissock after seeing how long it was now taking, and finished in half the time I did.
