Ron Dickens Australia Very clear and concise. Well done. 20141201 21:12:41

Roderick Foreman United States of America nice refresher course 20141201 07:12:44

Ron Dickens Australia I have done the assessment and received notice that I achieved 100% but it doesn't show as having been completed. Is there a glitch at your end or mine? 20141130 00:11:25

Timothy Carbone Other I really like how simple and straightforward the instruction is. This course is amazing! My only gripe, if at all, would be the lack of live interaction via videoconferencing so that students can ask questions. But then, I can understand why that would be much more complicated to maintain this as a free and convenient learning tool. Besides, I can see that one way to help understand the course material better is to look for a prerequisite and start there first. For example, if one is trying to learn Algebra, yet is finding it to be too difficult, then it might be better to start out with "PreAlgebra" instead first. 20141129 07:11:32

juan Peres Togo Excellent course! 20141124 19:11:24
