Course Reviews

Not a fan of the overly specific fill in the blank questions. I was marked wrong for omitting the word "the" on an answer!

This course would be equivalent to a semester's worth of work & information & not suitable for a 7 hour ce class which most agents take in class without quizzes or tests. I have been ill & unable to attend in class - this took me countless hours to finish. Of course the issue with fill in the blank test questions is a huge fault - make all of your questions multiple choice.

This course is jam packed with pertinent info/skills a real estate agent must navigate everyday.

Excellent content and presentation as well as the assistance that was provided.

I was very disappointed in the lack of leeway in the short answer sections. A misspelled word should not be counted as incorrect. Even if one letter was out of place, it was wrong. Also disappointed in how strict the terms were as you could only use just one particular word for the answer. Another word meaning the absolute same would be incorrect. Not sure I will use this venue again.

I feel like the questions were worded in such a way to make them hard to answer.

Much of the information in the test don't correlate to the course.
