I really enjoyed the thorough look at all of the different deviations and the inclusion of printable info sheets to use. I do wish that there was more emphasis on not only noticing them but how to explain to your clients what you are looking at and why it matters.

I feel like this course was a great refresher. I think the quiz was a bit too intense for the material that was presented.
