    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.

    Anonymous review on 8/12/2018
    The instructor was patient and nice. However, we didn't even cover 70% of the content, and the instructor basically was just reading her slides. She also failed to cut out some of our classmate's irrelevant chitchat in class. I did not pay to listen to them talking about their life problems. I don't think it's worth $300 and definitely want my money back.
