What Our Students Say

Horrible Test Design
Example of what this course was... Presentation Document: today we will learn about - cats, dogs, and fish Exam Question: what are we learning today? My answer: cats, dogs, and fish CFIs answer: WRONG. The correct answer is cats and dogs even though we put fish in our pdf document. 0 points, no partial credit for getting 2/3 correct, this is all wrong. So beat. Thankful to be done with this one
