I just wanted to thank you for the great course your program provided. In just over two and a half months, I completed the New York Salesperson course, passed the end of course exam, and, then passed the New York state exam on the first try. Your course was invaluable in my preparation. The easy to use and friendly environment of the online course work was terrific. It prepared me in such a way that there was no guess work on the exams. I knew the material from learning it your way and putting the course work to practical use. Thanks again. I highly recommend it. Robert M. Riley
