    Excellent course! Still reviewing some of the aspects presented, but the detail is great especially for someone starting to study for the CHT exam. It also reinforces knowledge one may already have, with good reminders of details. Thanks! Deb Dellere

  4. Amy Piazza

    The course was excellent. The format was not only fun but educational. I liked the questions at the end of each section. My only suggestion, create a seperate format to print. I would like to print out the course for a quick reference at work. Thank you for the great tendon review.
