I was so stressed about enrolling and completing this class. I was referred by my attorney and I have to say that the experience was smooth and the class turned out to be really helpful. I got to take it on my phone, so that was cool. I didn't have to take off work. It was super affordable. Overall I would say it was a wonderful experience.
