At the 12.99 price a reasonable value
Not bad, most of my discontent was with Interweave not the teacher. You took much longer to get the link to the content than seemed reasonable, and only after several emails. Your request for a review was also annoying as you listed the price as substantially lower than what I had paid. Review by Nancy (Posted on 3/22/2015)
