    One week in

    For what it’s worth, I’m only a week in, Five days of studying. Today I received my second email prompting me to review the class, it was marked as my last chance to review. It seems a little odd.
    The math questions seem to be adequate for the task. I had learned a couple of tricks. There does seem to be quite a bit of content. Today I began highlighting books. I have to say that I did not enjoy the computer simulated narration. A human voice would be so much better and easier to understand. Fortunately it is easy to replay any section and to move forward and backward. I do like that it is in a slideshow format versus a video which would need to be continuously paused while highlighting.
