ACTUAL STUDENT COMMENTS:"The class was fun and interesting which is uncommon considering some of the material.""I took the test Monday morning...and passed! The test proctor asked where I took the class and mentioned that she's heard nothing but great things about your class and I confirmed her opinion of you."ACTUAL STUDENT COMMENTS from the BLD course: "I took a test prep course with another company, and I thought they were pretty good. And then I took your course. You are SO much more thorough in your teaching. Makes the other one look bad.""Just wanted to drop you a note and say THANK YOU! Your class definitely helped me pass the BLD test. There were others with me who had taken the test multiple times and were shocked that I passed it on the first try. No way I could have passed without your help with materials! Your class will be highly recommended!"
"I could not have in a million years passed this test without your prep course. You can't just walk in and pass this test."
"I don't know how you could do this without taking a class."
"The tabs were SO well thought out - they got me through the test."
"You know what you're doing."
