The critique worked fast and surprised me with the many angles it looks at for the report. The feedback given is brilliant. I love it!!!

Excellent. Fast and comprehensive in its analysis of the text. The feedback was spot on. I like how the review is broken down into sections.

The report feedback is impressive; it provided lots of praise and made me more confident in my writing. The "potential improvements" was a surprise and has provided something to think about.
