there were two questions, and a possible third that were not correct. Question 183 cant be true if a previous question (can you excavate before a UDC permit) is not true, but that is exactly what you have at present. Bracing questions referred to data not presented in materials (302.25 K I dont think is even a legitimate table) or is not readily found by using State of WI resources. Very lengthy questions seems overkill compared to being in trades and doind 3 to 4 mfg. sessions throughout the

It would be nice to be able to check all five questions with one click rather then checking each individual question and having the course load. Otherwise it was pretty good and very conveniently formatted. I'd love to see better descriptions of wall bracing/panels. A video would be helpful for that section if at some point you are able. I feel that would be a better use of your time then the video on project management. Thanks.

I think the course is excellent overall. However the glitchy videos in the PROJECT MANAGEMENT section were really annoying. I had to restart every video numerous times to finally get to the questions section. Video 4 stopped 3 times and needed to restart, the last time with just 4 seconds remaining. AArrrgh! Once they stopped there was no way to restart them. They just froze. If you can fix that, I'll give you 5 stars. Better yet stick with the simple format of the other areas and save your
