Good, But Still Needs Work - While this is a good effort and works as advertised it does have a few things that NEED to corrected. 1. On my very first test (with the questions being chosen at random using test pool 3), three questions were presented to me twice during that test. You should NEVER have the same question asked twice in a single test. I have done enough programming to know that being able to prevent duplicates is not difficult to do. This is something I would have had implemented before I ever let the program see the light of day. 2. There were three different questions where the answers were too long for the box, which caused part of the answer to be coverd up. The FCC loves to make the difference between a right or wrong answer dependent upon ONE word being right or wrong. So obscuring even one word can mean the difference between whether you choose that answer or not. Instead of using a Text Entry Field, the program should be using a Static Text gadget to display the answers so that there is no bounding box to obscure long answers. 3. I like the "show correct answer when selected" feature. But when I have that selected, and I first select a wrong answer and then select the right answer, the right answer gets counted in the final test score. I disagree with this. If I am supposed to get an idea of how well I'm doing I need it to score my FIRST selected answer so that I get an accurate score. Other than those three exceptions, the program performs quite well and does what it's supposed to do.
Seriously outdated! - This is the old tests. Only good for learning general stuff, but definitely not for today's test.
