My company doesn't pay for online or in person seminars (only for traditional study manuals.) so, I had to pay for most of the seminar out of pocket. But it was SO worth it and I recommend it to everyone who is struggling learning the material on their own. I learned so much through listening to the videos. I'm an auditory learner, and loved the little snippets you added to the material to make it easier to remember.
