This has the WORST program associated with the book. Not a single person I spoke with at Savannah Tech that has taken this class (including me), has enjoyed it. The computer access program is very glitchy. Nearly every lesson is finished with "You do not seem to be keying from the correct exercise." This forces you to re-type the entire exercise or get no credit for work done. I typed a 9 page report and got this wonderful response. Same thing for my final exam! I would never recommend this program. I'm considering legal action to get my money back for the waste of time and tuition that I incurred.
