Easy as Pie!!
By: on Feb 11, 2020
Thank you for making this process so easy!! One of the best things happened before I even took the test. I accidentally purchased the wrong product. When I called to ask for a refund, the person who helped me was very friendly and accommodating and immediately refunded my money. Then doing the program is so simple and painless! And I really appreciated that I was able to take the exam online and get my results at the end. No waiting involved! I would recommend this program over the other one anytime!!!
