I thought the actual lessons were informative and helpful. Some of the challenge questions and the Milestone questions were not worded well and had the potential to have more than one answer. It almost seemed as if it was "trick questions," which is not the point of an assessment in education.

FULL of information. WOW! Took me about 3 hours to complete. I really enjoyed this one in terms of just being able to learn a lot. Highly recommend. Also - the milestone and practice milestone were much easier than the challenge questions!
