This was a great source for figuring out ways to make google searches more successful. There were things I didn't know and it was helpful to know how to type in searches and limit searches in order to get the in best results. It was also interesting to learn additional functions that are related to the google search.

There are a lot more search engine functionalities than I would have expected (searching within specific site, without specific words, within specific date ranges). Very helpful course that will save time on future searches.

Nice refresher for google search tips. Learned a few new ones and ways to easily refine a search. PDF was nice so you can skip a section if you’re already very familiar with it.

Very basic and am not sure how this provides CPE credit for CPAs. I thought there would be some technical information regarding how Google algorithms actually work.

Good info, quick read. Learned a few things. Like others said, really surprised the entire "course" was a PDF document.
