Unfortunately, learners from one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this course: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine. While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations. EdX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.

I’ve tried many of the most popular books and videos and this prep course, for me, is the simplest and quickest path to learn the objectives. [Sari] covers all the objectives. I especially love the organized way she teaches and her diagrams are put together to make things easier to comprehend. This course mirrors the objectives. In my opinion it’s the best prep course I’ve come across yet.
