"This course was very helpful. I felt prepared for the exam by the course, but also benefitted from the "extra" learning and questions in the Teacher Center. I was so happy to have passed this exam. Thank you!"

"Although I initially thought I should only take the test due to using Google applications often, I am glad that I took the course because it showed me some of the application I rarely/never use and some of the great tools that they encompass! "
