  1. Thank You for the course evaluation. The course is advertised as a text Course. We’ve fixed the incomplete question.

  2. 2

    Thought this was a video/webinar, it’s not. The reference document did cover the material well, in a concise but complete manner. Lots of information in a short paper.

    The test started with an incomplete question (#1!) with no provision to even select an answer. The test was otherwise fair and covered the material. Nothing tricky.
