The course Essential Law for Buyers and Sellers was outstanding. Until now, I have never had a discussion with any of my supervisors about these laws, and I am not sure they even know they exist. Math for Purchasing was a tough way to spend a Saturday but a much needed course in my line of work. It will make me a much better asset to my employer.
