I had problems opening the PDF...took forever to load so that was frustrating.

Parts were very good. However, reading nearly 100 pages then taking the exam with no videos or other charts or summaries very challenging. Everyone learns differently. Visuals or auditory would have been more helpful

I really enjoyed the course and found the information very helpful.
