This course took a Boring topic and made it even more BORING than watching paint dry. It was only micro amount above watching dirt age. The Instructor's monotone delivery is as unenthusiastic as preparing for a colonoscopy. And to top it off, all the review questions were covered in the presentation when over 60% of the presentation remained. I would have not stayed all the way through to the end except for the fact I really wanted the 2 hours CPE. Next time I might decide otherwise.
