What Others Have Said...
One of the things I like about Life Skills courses here is that you can pick the exact lessons you want to learn instead of the whole course. And each of the lessons are pretty cheap...that's pretty cool for my budget.
First Time Renter
This is the first time I saw a course on how to rent an apartment...I watched 2 lessons, the one on qualifying for apartment and the other one talking about the tenant lease agreement, I have to say I learned some good info.
