    What I Did Like Review by Damon

    good, but needs work Review by Matt
    I thought the Practice Exam book was great. However, the review manual was painful to read. The structures portion for the Project Development & Documentation exam was not helpful at all. I spent a long time reviewing the structures sections and still went into the test feeling completely unprepared. The structures study materials, as well as many other sections felt like an overload of information that I did not see on the test. There were also a lot of type-o's. (Posted on 12/5/2019)
