Thank you. I like the focus on the diff. bw AICPA and WA Board. To the point! I think that might be cleared stated the renewal period for individuals CPA and the requirements. Thank you!

I liked the text book style course - this allowed the learner to read through materials at their own pace rather than listening to a program at a specific pace. I also felt the review questions allowed the learner to get more familiar with the course material and strengthened chances of passing the final exam.

The course is very detailed and useful for my CPE education, which gave many tips to complete my CPE credits. There are always many attentions needed to be paid to my ethical behavior, and this course taught me a full compliance concept related to my routine work.Thanks for Ms.patricia's great work.

It was great being able to take the WA approved ethics with Illumeo! One note, question 11 on the practice quiz had an answer phrased oddly. It was written "This option is correct so it is not the right answer" before providing the option.

Information was presented in a clear, concise and organized manner. The text based class was very convenient since I could stop and then come back to it easily. I also like that it provides a great resource for future reference.

Well written course. I downloaded materials and divided them into segments for reading over three days. Was nice to be able to not complete in one sitting. Overall, time devoted exceeded 4 hours.

Review questions help in understanding the context. Format has room for improvement. It has all the information but not intuitive enough. The course is cheaper than most other sites.

I didn't like the formatting of the PDF provided. It felt as if everything was jumbled together. I thought the information was properly presented though.

All of the links in the document are helpful. The text is hard to read at times because of multiple fonts and lack of spacing.
