    Considering that this was my first self-study course through myCPE.com, I was pleased. I did have some issues accessing the final quiz, but myCPE support was very helpful with a quick resolution.

    Thank you. The Arizona Board requires courses specific to Arizona every year so it is really helpful that you set this up specifically for Arizona. The lecture is very good.

    The webinar was a bit confusing because the instructor stated twice that some of the material was covered in a different course when in reality it was covered in this course but just in a different part (Part 1 or Part 2). Some of the quiz questions did not make sense. For example, the last answer for question #3 was the "question" for question #4 and had nothing to do with the 4 answers given.

    Lecture was good, however the quiz had almost nothing to do with the lecture itself.
