April 23rd, 2017
Very good course. Thank you!

April 14th, 2017
Its very informative. I wish it had more to do with my trade of painting. Thanks

April 2nd, 2017
Found 1 question worded wrong. I flagged it. Question was about bond amount for commercial developers...but answers provided where amounts for insurance. Other wise was a well structured and easy to use course

April 1st, 2017
There was one questions that was worded very complicated and a couple that made absolutely no sense to me but if these are the kind of questions that are in the State test then I can understand why they are in this test.

March 9th, 2017
Very helpful and informative.

March 7th, 2017
The info provided within the course was very helpful.

February 28th, 2017

February 19th, 2017
Great course

February 16th, 2017
I really enjoyed how easy to see the mobile version was on my phone. Overall very good course.

February 10th, 2017
I thought the course was very well thought out and concise.

April 1st, 2018
I found some of the questions ambiguous. Overall I would recomend

March 26th, 2018
Doesn't entirely match the book. Some quiz questions were ONLY in this course, but not in the book. So I couldn't look back to find/review the answer/info.

March 23rd, 2018
I like the accessibility of the course. The way it is organized helps you to study and get familiar with the material.

March 12th, 2018
This is a good way to work through the material at a relatively good clip. I'd recommend it as an option to get your CL.

February 13th, 2018
would be nice to have a reference to key words, so you could have easy access to the area you need to review. It appears the online course and the book does use the same wording or explaination of concepts.

January 15th, 2018
Review of quiz should have page numbers to find answer in NASCLA Book.

January 5th, 2018
Clear and straightforward...could utilize more visual images or models to reinforce the lessons.

December 5th, 2017
Most of the questions I missed had the wrong answers or were worded incorrectly.

November 25th, 2017
very good course

September 4th, 2017
Some test questions need updated as they do not match information found in the book.

August 29th, 2017
In all this course was very thorough. However, I found two questions on the pre-final exam that were incorrect on your part. Other than that I rather enjoyed this course.

August 27th, 2017
Over all the course was helpful, thus far. However, I have not taken the CCB test yet. The course has several questions that do not make since, or are misleading. This is not helpful, unless that is directly from the CCB test.

August 15th, 2017
wording and definitions a bit off what test questions are and makes it difficult for answering. Over all very educational and was a bit more than the 16 hrs to finish.

June 26th, 2017
This course provided sufficient information in an easy to read manner. It adequately prepared me to pass the CCB exam and offered the flexibility to access the class whenever and wherever I pleased.

June 11th, 2017
Pretty good course. Only reason i didn't give 5 stars is some of the answers to the questions are not in the book. Great at your own pace course though.

June 9th, 2017
Some of test questions could not be found i text

June 5th, 2017
overall fairly good course.I wish there was a glossary of terms in the back of the book, with reference to where to locate the info in the chapter. also, there was one wrongly worded question on my second exam, it had something to do with the amount of bond a commercial contractor had to have per incident... it should have read how much insurance, not bond. I also wish there was a wider selection of questions on the final exam. meaning, I took the first test when I was half asleep, and failed.

May 30th, 2017
Was quite good but were a few areas that were difficult like continuing education requirements.

May 19th, 2017
It's a great course and it's nice that you can do it on a mobile device , some words need a better definition that easier to understand

May 2nd, 2017
I liked this updated book better than the last; it's shorter and easier to read. However, there's a lot of repeat information or parts of topics covered in different places so with it not having an index or glossary, you really need to know where to locate things, and furthermore, there could be a few places to look which makes it complicated to verify answers in terms of testing.

April 13th, 2017
Good overall, but I did find several questions that the book simply did not define, or have a quantifiable answer to.

April 12th, 2017
i thought some of the wording was incorrect in the test ie.insurance and bonding questions.

April 6th, 2017
Very informative. A lot of information to cover in 16 hours.

March 27th, 2017
I thought the course was very helpful and definitely got me ready for the final test. The one minor complaint I have is I noticed that after reading the chapter in the NASCLA Guide and then going through the corresponding chapters online sometimes their was information online that wasn't in the book. It worries me a little bit because I know the final test is an open book test, but it seems their's a possibility that some of the questions I have to answer might not be in this book.

December 7th, 2017
im a flooring sub contractor .The course material does not pertain to my craft or daily business dealings.

September 14th, 2017
I think the question of what type of license will a person carry should be asked so they can get specific training on that particular license.

August 21st, 2017
The way the test questions were worded made it hard to figure out answers and or locate info in the book. It would also be helpful if the book was tabbed to make it quicker to find helpful or key information

June 10th, 2017
No response to email requests about expedited shipping of textbook. Had to borrow from a fellow contractor to finish course in shorter amount of time.

May 9th, 2017
While any extra info is always appriciated. It would have been nice to know what extra info you used was identified as "Not in the manual". I could have written that info on another paper instead of sibling it down in the margins of the manual. If it was identified it would have been a lot easier to take your pre test. I spent time searching the manual during the test for info that was not in it. thus the 3 star rating.

March 30th, 2017
Was not a fan of having to buy 2 books.

August 28th, 2017
Some of your exam questions don't match the books terminology which leaves the questions open for interpretation.

August 28th, 2017
I was not able to find the specifics to question answers in the NASCLA book but remember reading them in the online review. Also there are a lot of spelling errors.

March 15th, 2017
questions were worded poorly, information was hard to find
