I really appreciate that our instructor was extremely knowledgeable and was able to provide the information in a way that it could be understood. He also provided valuable test-taking strategies that I know not only helped me with this exam, but will help in all exams I take in the future.

Excellent! Our instructor had a vast background and related the materials to real life. Much better than just teaching the materials to pass an exam ... but he did that as well. He went out of his way in class. The extra materials really benefited us when we returned to our real jobs! Great experience!
