  • Kithsiri Lakshman Gunawardhana Sri Lanka The course really is an eye-opener. Although in an elementary level, it gives a considerable awareness of the subject. Alison tutorials have always provided adequate knowledge on the topics. 2015-02-24 22:02:52
  • Michaela Jayne Canada If the WHOLE Law Cookies series was available from start to (finish? or a conclusive point) that would be awesome! Perhaps as a Diploma. . .ignore me if that is already the case but I have not seen it as such. Really enjoyed how straight-forward and example-based/situation-based the program is. . .a bit slow though so an option to increase/slow the rate of video would be awesome. . .'tho I understand the constraints of coding with pre-established web players. 2015-01-30 08:01:38
