I am disciplined enough to have read the whole book and taken all the reviews and quizzes. Loved the proctoring. It was so easy to schedule things to my needs.

Great course for busy people - I was able to work on this late at night, after my family was asleep. The proctored exams are easy to take and very convenient as well.
