by Susan dropped this course, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Overall, I felt very frustrated with the class. The lessons were okay, but many times I would type in an answer, knew it was the correct one after checking the correct answer to make sure it wasn't me, and still would get the "try again" message. I ended up dropping the class and will look for another site.
