McKissock appraisal course ratings and reviews

McKissock is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 96.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This course is well thought out in both organization and presentation. It was easy to follow the topics as they were presented. The intermediate quizzes were helpful in reinforcing the material that was presented without being overly deceptive in the manner of forming the questions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent course for expanding your scope of knowledge
Date published: 2016-07-26
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I would not recommend this course online. I think this is the type of course that would be much easier to absorb if you had a professor teaching. There are very few opportunities to participate and I think the professor needs to speak more often and offer tips/tricks/real life examples. This is essentially a course consisting of reading old, outdated powerpoint slides. This makes actual learning and application very difficult.
Date published: 2017-11-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by from This course was not what I expected. Does not meet up to the standards it advertised. This is dinosaur age text. A lot of useless information. I will do my best not to take anymore courses from here.
Date published: 2017-10-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fantastic course that allowed me to login anytime and work around my schedule and my proctor's convenience. Customer service was helpful when I had (probably very silly) questions.
