We at Cooke School have always felt that Distance Learning was an excellent method of education. Why? The reason distance learning works is because distance learning forces students to work through the course because of the assessment requirements. Plus, with our video streaming product, students not only can listen and view the course presentation but they view it over and over again.
I just wanted to let you know that I think you have an outstanding website. I just took the Florida Real Estate Laws and Rules exam to get my mutual recognition brokers license. Prior to finding your site, I was unable to figure out how to study for exam and once I realized I needed to order a book on the Internet it would have been too late. I found your website and spoke with one of your associates and he recommended I watch the 3 Hr Core Law w/ Dallie Moriarty, which was exactly what I needed. I though the slides and the presentation were excellent and I passed the exam thanks to your site. I will be sure to use your school for my continuing education.
