  • microtyger - Didn't Work Well on Microfiber...

    I sprayed this onto my brand new "nylon" couch (made by Ashley, and material feels just like SUEDE or microfiber). I did it in two nice, deep coatings, and then I spilled water on it about a month later.

  • Cruzanrican - This is awesome however its not a game but a true training ...

    This is awesome however its not a game but a true training aid to learn how to play a guitar. It takes that hard work out of learning but not the dedication. From experience I will say that if you don't practice then it wont work. Its not a magical machine to make you play but it most definitely will help you learn if you dedicate time to learning. Would recommend and buy again if need to. Excellent for any age who think that the old fashion way is boring.

  • Desiree - I would HIGHLY recommend this for anyone planning to take the GRE

    I would HIGHLY recommend this for anyone planning to take the GRE. The online aspects were extremely helpful, as well as the flashcard app for your phone/tablet. Some of the math concepts were a little difficult to understand the way they were explained in the book. But overall good investment.
