Everything is just perfect. The information for each module and summary were easy to read and simple. I like how to modules set a pace which I do one every single day. The quiz questions helps me learn the content easier. I don't skim. I enjoy reading every single word and pondering on it. The only downside is not getting an expert to answer some questions about the content in the collaborate. Although I guess its intended for colleagues to talk but still we need help. Some of the answers to the questions I believe were wrong. Otherwise, five stars to everything else. You'll need an easy way to contact the staff on the collaborate. So any questions the staff answers, others can see it too. This business is doing well, but just a little bit more investment, huge profits can be made as you'll be making ecourse4u the best there is.
