Very easy to use the course. Would recommend to anyone.
Some of the test questions were outdated (2017). Some of the answer choices were misleading as well.
Good course...very informative and helpful!
It would be nice to have courses focused on commercial real estate.
This course was very detailed and informative. It was easy to navigate. I really enjoyed the experience.
The Mandatory course, although required, was both informative and educational. One doesn't realize what he doesn't know until taking the course.
