Student Success

“This was a great course and Chris did an excellent job!!  I really enjoyed the class, format, and instructor.  Chris was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all the questions in a way we could understand.  You can tell he genuinely cares if his students pass the exam. The repetition was great for learning and the opportunity to interact was also a plus.  He also shared additional materials that would help us be more successful.  All around great course and I plan on recommending.
