Disappointed...not worth to study at Sydney study centre.. totally regret

i am currently studying at sydney study centre, it's a flat in 10th floor where a small cabinet so called library has only 5 course books per unit. when there are 40 students ie 1 book for 8 students... no resources, no library. the course expects you to read a lot of books when u don't even have a libr read full review
