Reviewed by Martine A. on 5/9/2019
The curriculum is basic but the reminders are a great refresher of what I knew. Granted I didn't know it all, and was very impressed to learn the different styles of writing that can be included in one document. I would recommend the course to professionals and college graduates about to enter the work force. The proper etiquette taught in this class would beneficial. I didn't give 5 stars because, nothings perfect.
