There were a few typos in the Test when compared to the support slides, so a detailed review may be in order. However these did not interfere with the dissemination of information. The course is relevant and well done.

There is a lot of ground to cover in this course and instructor covers it thoroughly. A good course. I'm sure updates are (will be) necessary since things are changing so quickly.

Instructor spoke in a straightforward manner and was detailed in her explanations. However, the course slides are not well organized and there were some audio issues.

I very much enjoyed the presenter's style and this course was extremely detailed and informative. I removed a star because audio cut out for several minutes.

a bit too much emphasis on filing and extensions but I understand the importance of it. Overall, a bit too much information for a short course period

Stale and out of date. Unfortunately the platform doesn't appear to show when the course was released to determine if it is still valid.

I probably took this course a little too late. Much of the material has been updated since this was put together.
