Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was convenient to have the book to read and study and then answer the questions and log in and fill your answers in. I thought I would have to mail it in but found the online answer submission much quicker. The information is knowledgeable and refreshing. The overall course is convenient having a non traditional schedule.
