    All of the information was provided clearly and succinctly. The instructor/program showed a knowledge and enthusiasm for the material and teaching. Some information was repeated and taught extensively, while not being equally represented in the exams. Itemized Deductions being the biggest example of this. There were also rampant grammatical errors that caused confusion, especially during the exams. Additionally, there were questions within the exams that were worded counter intuitively, using double negatives and the like that effected my ability for comprehension. It felt like it was a test of understanding the test rather than the material or tax language.

    Information was very repetitive but this information was not necessarily on the tests so information on the test was washed out and there was a large amount of typos

    I was drawn to this course because of the ability to learn at my own pace and to complete the course from the comfort of my own home. Frankly, that was the only benefit to this course. Now, I don’t want to slam this course for all its many flaws but I do want to provide constructive criticism. However, I will not hold back my honest feelings of my opinion on this course. For starters, the price is higher than many of the in-class courses that are offered near me, but my employer was paying for it, so I wasn’t too concerned. After working through the first couple lessons, I would find the occasional typo. I then realized that there is a suggestion box to the right of the window that allows me to bring attention to the typo. I used the suggestion box at the time but later kept finding more and more typos. If I spent the time correcting all the typos I see, I’d never get my course done in the time period my employer set for me. This is supposed to be a professional course approved by the state board…why would there be so many typos? These typos consist of spelling, punctuation, grammar, math symbols, and math calculations. I was shocked and appalled as to how horribly this course was written. It would be advantageous of you to hire a technical writer to at least proofread and fix all your errors. Your videos introducing and concluding each lesson are a waste of time. The introduction is simply telling me what the criteria is going to cover and the conclusion video basically repeats the exact same thing. I already know what I learned, why do you need to recap it? Also, the videos are amateur at best. The video quality is worse than what I could shoot with my cell phone camera. The audio quality isn’t much to speak of either. Personally, I think I could have made videos from technology of the 90’s that would be better than this. The course content bored me nearly to death. It consisted of purely reading material, generally verbatim from the publications, with pathetic clip art images pulled from the internet. I found myself having to do something different periodically to keep my sanity. I felt that it was just really lazy writing. Please provide something a little more visual to entice the reader, to keep them engaged. Pictures are nice but they need to directly correlate to the content. Engaging videos that mimic the in-class experience or better would also be a huge improvement. In my opinion, this course was convenient because of the flexibility but not worth the money because of how poorly the content was given. In its current state and price point, I would not recommend this course to anyone. If the typos were cleaned up and the content was a little more exciting to read about, this course would be nearly perfect for everyone.

    This is for you if you are in to having to read the OARs, statutes, publications, etc. to verify the contents of the on-line course.
