Following. I’m sure it won’t be easy unless you know exactly where certain things are in the book, but within that time limit I’m sure it’s possible.

There’s a search function within the book so yes, you can look up the answers as you go.

Provider: Study.com
Course: Business 105: Labor Relations
Course content: standard study.com quizzes
Final exam format: 100 multiple choice
Final exam content vs course content/practice exams: The final is based on the course work
Time taken on course: about 8 days while working full time
Familiarity with subject before course: I run a business so I am relatively familiar
Pitfalls, high points, things others should know: Whoever wrote this course wrote it from the perspective of "there is never a reason not to have a union and nothing a union does is ever bad" so be ready for that. Gets a little eye-rolly when they're trying to tell you how having to pay everyone more money for less work is actually a good thing for business owners. Other than that it's fine. The case law section might trip a few people up. There is a ton of focus on arbitration, which fortunately I already knew about but if that's new to you then you might be in for a slog.
1-10 Difficulty level: 1-2 for me. If you just repeat "unions are the only path to salvation" in your head over and over while you take the final, all the answers are clear enough. The case law bit is just memorization.

Provider: Study.com
Course: Business 325: Union & Labor Relations
Course content: standard study.com quizzes & 2 written assignments
Final exam format: 70 multiple choice
Final exam content vs course content/practice exams: The final is based on the course work
Time taken on course: 1 day
Familiarity with subject before course: I run a business and had just finished Business 105
Pitfalls, high points, things others should know: After you finish Business 105 it fills in all but 20 quizzes of this one, so you might as well go ahead and take it. It's written from more of a pro-business slant than the LL course is (this is common with Study.com LL/UL combos) so this one focuses more on the defects of unions and illegal things they've done, etc
1-10 Difficulty level: 2. If you just did the LL one the day before this is simple
Study.com - 111 CR. TESU - 27 CR. CLEP - 6 CR. Sophia - 2 CR. TEEX - 2 CR. Shmoop - 18 CR. NFA - 4 CR. The Institutes - 4 CR. Excelsior - 3 CR. Middle Georgia State University - 15 CR. FEMA - 20ish

Provider: TEEX
Course: Basic Property Technician
Course content: The content is provided in a video game-type style (For reference, search: “Habbo Hotel”).  
Final exam format: 40 multiple choice, no time limit and only 3 attempts allowed.
Final exam content vs course content/practice exams: The information was present in some of the dialogue from the modules, but they put a ton of emphasis on you reading through tons & tons of Texas/Federal law for so many situations & topics.  
Time taken on course: 1 day.
Familiarity with subject before course: None whatsoever.  I only did this for the credits.  
Pitfalls, high points, things others should know:  There isn’t a pre-exam.  Also, you HAVE to look through the source material & Texas law (all provided in different virtual books) to knock out the final exam, as they will quiz you on questions that pertain to different situations.  Also, make sure you write down the definitions of all the words and different meanings to cover your butt (like any course).  
1-10 Difficulty level: 4, but only due to the resource material being a massive clutter to search through.

I'm taking this course now, I'm up to Thursday currently ( about 2.5 hours in ). Is the final based on the little game course or is there a need to look beyond at the virtual books? Some of those references seem like a total nightmare to dig through.

I just completed this course with 90/100 on the first try. The test seems to have been changed a bit and now all the questions asked can be found in the "game" prior to the test. I would rate difficulty 2/10, requires a bit of thinking but all the questions share a similar pattern.
