Very boring and difficult to understand. Read like the tax code. Glad it was the 4 credit course.

  • I have taken multiple courses from The CPE Discount Store.  They have great customer support and I received my certificate of completion on the same day.

  • The CPE Discount Store offers a great selection of online CPE courses.   I was able to complete my course on my time frame which is a great way to take CPE.  Having the book as a reference for future work was also helpful.

  • The CPE Discount Store course materials are very straight forward and easy to understand, I particularly like the website and customer follow up to my questions.

Either you re-did the course after jstone\'s review, or he/she confused this course with another one. The test for this course had 15 questions, not 120, and all of them were about material covered in the course. It was fine and I recommend it.
Looks like this course needs to be updated.
Old customer in 2015, will give a try in 2017 now. Hope the courses are approved by the Board.
