Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Appraisal Subject Matter Electives Course really added a lot to my appraisal education. It was able to touch on many subjects that may have only been briefly mentioned in other courses, or not mentioned at all. It also tied in the other appraisal concepts that I have been learning. I'm looking forward to putting this knowledge to use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was able to take my CE credits on my own time. This was the most important consideration for me. If you have trouble focusing on material you read, and need to have it presented to you, don't do this course. For me it worked.
