Hey, I took the #$%@ quiz and it thinks I'm borderline - got an 85. Of course, I didn't see any warning that I should have a formula sheet and calculator onhand - it sure would have helped.
I didn't like that it doesn't even tell you which questions you get right or wrong. Just a score at the end. I'd like to know how anyone got the 147 scores? My guess is taking it multiple times under different names.
Anyway, I did screen captures on each question just so I could have a record to check myself. Here they are for your study period prior to taking the quiz.
Anyone care to give us all your choices for the answers - showing your solutions gets you extra credit. QUIZ #1
