I spent less time, and learned more clearly with this content, than the content on the DV test. The quiz was also written More clearly for this test. I felt very frustrated with the content and the test questions on the DV test, and failed the first time. This was a pleasure to read, and to then take the quiz. It was clear, concise, I didn’t get frustrated, and only missed 2 questions on this test. Better test construction, than the DV test, which was tedious, took too long to take, I spent too much time on the DM materials and the test , also. This was Clear, well done.
