4.0/5

By Kenneth Enzman on 03/31/2019

Enjoyed the course and got a better understanding of the code. Draw back is the time stamps were recorded 6hrs ahead of MST

5.0/5

By Michael Yarnell on 03/31/2019

The course was the most in depth continuing education course that I've ever had to take. Generally when I do continuing education courses, they only cover the changes to the code. This one addressed some of the changes but 99% of it was brushing up on calculations. I personally don't mind brushing up on calculations, but I would have liked to have gone over more of the changes throughout the code, not just calculations.

The voice can sometimes put you to sleep, and the audio will be abruptly loud at the beginning of the slide which is very startling while using earbuds. However, the course is very nice being able to take it at your own pace. Each slide show is between 35 and 45 minutes, and if you have to leave it, then it will return back to its place where you left off. Very convenient. I will definitely take the course from this provider again if it is available next time.

At the beginning of each new slide on the videos, the person speaking starts off very loud and then gets very quiet and monotone sounding. I would have to turn my speakers up to hear him but then he got way too loud.

I believe more information could be fit in the lessons if fewer repetitive example problems were discussed. Also the last three questions of quiz 12 are the same question and different answer choices are given, sets you up for failure on that quiz. There was a lot that was helpful I definitely needed the brush up and the course was very affordable, thanks.
