I thought this course was easy!! Didn't really understand parts of it and honestly I didn't even think I was going to pass ended up passing by the grace of god
by Samuel H. on May 14, 2017
The material was good but the test questions were poorly worded. The questions were a bit vague and ambiguous.
Sophia replied on May 15, 2017
