Interactive Questions
Focus on Question Review
  1. Take all "Unanswered Questions." This will present new ways of asking the same questions you answered with your lessons.
  2. Answer all "Marked Questions." Read each explanation and if you don't understand it, watch the associated video. When confident, unmark the question.
  3. Re-take all "Questions Ever Missed" to reinforce the correct answers—even if you last answered it correctly. If you miss a question again, read the explanation and watch the associated video.
  4. Review each question category and answer questions from any areas where you don't feel confident.
