I didn't have many issues with the CDS or the PPP vignettes. Even the SPD on the NCARB site was not to tough to figure out. The Alts are kicking my but. so I think I really need a critic of them. I test in two weeks and this one took me a while. I want to get the concepts down and then I can work on speed. I'd appreciate any insight you might have. Thanks
