It was much more difficult than going to the classroom courses and took much longer than the required amount of time.

April 15th, 2018
Quality build but lacking text to speech option...

March 26th, 2018
Break this down to a 1st time License seeker vs experienced/ 1st timers licensing require the full course, 2nd 3rd years drop the habits components and drive the functional and code required data.

This takes way more time than in person classes and you better be a good student and test taker.

February 26th, 2018
maybe some more videos to brake up all the reading, we are contractors.

You need to fine tune this course to the specific needs of a general contractors license and to the respective States Requirements. GOOD LUCK
