The instructor was able to take material that prior to the class had made no sense, and explained it in real world scenarios that were able to be understood.

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.

Michelle Jemmott, Pentagon

The course was extremely helpful and provided exactly what we needed to know in order to successfully navigate the exam. Without this I am not confident I would have passed.
