    The course information is great but the format makes it frustration. I could not download all the sections. I could not return to questions that I didn't answer. My quiz was scored without asking if I was sure I wanted it scored like in other courses. Disappointed.

    How do we find out which questions we got wrong? I'd like to know that information to educate myself. You also have a grammar issue with the part of "preparing for the quiz". It say "Your done". Should say "you're done". It just makes you look a bit suspect, especially when you're educating us. Thanks


    ACE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback. We are currently working on correcting this quiz issue for future use. Please contact the ACE Professional Education department if you have further questions at 1-800-825-3636.

    Out of date information (Vit D RDA). Cumbersome in that you can't print out the information and you can't listen to the presentation all the way through without hitting "next" and "play" every so-many seconds. Info was pretty basic. Also, check your grammar. "You are" is "you're," not "your."

    too time consuming taking down notes.. too in-dept into study of menopause and not much fitness-related.

    Good information. I didn't like how the course was set up. It would be great to have a printable course notes handout and an easier way to listen to the material. The course is not very user-friendly and it's hard to jump from section to section easily. I also found some of the quiz questions worded funny.

    I like it much better when the courses come with a PDF you can download and refer to. I ended up making my own document by copying and pasting from Paint to Word. I like to refer to these courses from time to time, because who can remember everything once you've completed the course?

    There were questions on the quiz on material NOT covered in the course. I would have liked to see my score, and see what questions I answered incorrectly and see the correct answers.
