  • "CAEL CE (Computer Edition) is self explanatory, and is very user friendly. In the writing component, it helps that there is a word count feature. There is also no stress about handwriting being awkward or having to scribble over spelling mistakes. CAEL CE is the way to go forward because it's how the current education system works and the way communication is handled in the professional world. CAEL CE hits right at the mark!"

It was simple and direct!"
