Customer Reviews


I've downloaded the course, and I like the outline and the format, but the instructor refers to slides that I do not see as available for download. I'm doing this on an iPhone with iOS 6, does it require an iPad?

Slides are missing

Really would like to go back and take this one again with the slides.

Will this need to pay money?

I click the 'subscribe' button. Will this charge to my phone credit?
