  • Overall I was very pleased with the course. Previously I knew just enough about pivot tables to be dangerous. Now I see the power that they have and I feel much more confident using pivot tables. The course materials were very clear and well prepared. I’ll be looking at your website for future CPE hours.

  • “It is rare that i can actually say that I enjoyed a CPE course but I found this one informative and very interesting, relying more on the author’s examples and not just quoting tax code!  [Healthcare Reform: The affordable Care Act Tax Provisions]
