Pros

Flexible class hours, Good teachers, Affordable, Positive environment, Good career preparation

Cons

Poor editing and enough ambiguously worded quiz/exam questions to mention.

Other comments

This course starts simple enough but within the first few chapters becomes really challenging, especially for those who may not retain as much anatomy and physiology knowledge from prior education. Expect to spend time studying body parts/systems, their functions and scientific concepts as they relate to exercise and nutrition. You would be wise to follow the program as intended, apply and challenge yourself in every section to be as thorough as possible, and to take/review every quiz/practice exam at least 3 times, even if you ace it the first time (the questions are randomly pulled from a much larger database of questions, so taking a quiz/exam once is not a good representation for the complete knowledge of a chapter/course). There is a lot of information to retain, so be prepared to study.
