I have a little experience of the FAS courses - they're incredibly badly
designed, not userfriendly in any way, and mostly inaccessible to anyone
that doesn't use Microsoft products and have a fast connection. The
uses a large Java applet, which it's impossible to keep notes with.
At least, that's how it was about three years ago when I was unemployed
for a while and thought I'd further myself with some cheap courses. You
get what you pay for - in this case, I paid nothing for it, and got
headaches in return for it.
