  • 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.

Great refresher course. Not wordy. Does a great job bringing me up to date as the computer programs do most of the work nowadays.

The last half or so of the course had nothing to do with divorce. The test was strange with question 107 seeming to have the man marry his daughter!

THE TEST WAS A MESS WITH SOME ANSWERS SHOWN TWICE AND OTHERS HAD THE QUESTION AS ONE OF THE ANSWERS. IT\'S OBVIOUS NO ONE PROOF READ THE ANSWERS BEFORE SUBMITTING.
