"Just wanted to let you know how much your site helped me tonight. I had to take an Accounting test for a job this evening and, if it weren't for your site, I would have absolutely failed it. I have been a stay-at-home Mom for 12 years, and before that only did a little Accounting here and there (I worked mostly as an Analyst or Auditor prior to kids) so I was REALLY rusty. The topic explanations and quizzes really helped refresh my memory and prepare me for the test. Regardless of whether I get the job or not, I am just psyched at doing well on the exam after all these years. Thanks again!!!" - M.V.
