some questions on the quiz were a little too specific. But overall a very good class!

March 13th, 2018
Great course! Worth taking!

The business aspects of this course were very informative. As a contractor I am heavy on the trades aspects but a little weak on the business aspects. This was really helpful that way, I learned a lot.

January 24th, 2018
I would like to see more of an update with current year changes or prior year changes.

A LOT OF THE INFORMATION WAS NOT RELEVANT TO A SMALL CONTRACTOR BUSINESS.

April 1st, 2018
Carefully study the information about insurance.

March 13th, 2018
I just felt that some answers weren't addressed in the test and I found myself looking over things quite a few times.

April 1st, 2018
too much time on the quizzes. I feel most of us smaller contractors are visual leaners and not big on reading. I would have classes for the actual hands on builder with illustrations on the best technique available, along with the minimum technique.
