    Five Stars Review by Customer
    Exactly what they said it was supposed to be. I received it very quickly. (Posted on 6/1/2016)

    Extremely Useful Review by Michelle
    I like how it is broken down into sections so you can easily distinguish your strong and weak areas. I like how it has the "why the other answers are wrong" in the solutions section. The one improvement I could suggest is to expand further in the solutions area. There have been several times I was stumped on the problem so I started looking through the solution. Useful things would be: 1) More information on where in the code the answer came from (code location, equation number) or where the equation came from that you are using if it wasn't out of a code 2) How you arrived at a particular arrangement in an equation (the procedure to rearrange the more complicated equations). Not all of us are math wizes so it would be nice to know how to convert an equation while we are at the test (if it wasn't one we wrote down already). I have tried to follow the math sometimes and realized it is impossible to do on the calculators we are allowed to take in. 3) Keep in mind that not only will this information come in handy on the test, it will also be used in our future careers and knowing where in a code something came from or how an equation was arrived at, will make us better engineers. Thank you. (Posted on 4/23/2016)
