    I am in the transitional process of moving to a new field 15+ years after training/degree. I really appreciate having this kind of information available to refresh me. Never had to have Certification in time of education, now everyone wants it. This brief peak is confirmation that I still have the knowledge obtained after so many years. One suggestion, please correct the answer key (answers) or the multiple choice options (answers) to alphabet.
