Tool option) and scroll down to the Installation Wizard and Home Diagnostic Tool Kit sections).
If you change your computer or use a different one, you will need to do this again. It only takes
a few minutes and it will optimize your computer to run the lessons and testing material.

track of exam deadlines and knowing the TA schedule so you can go in and test – there are no
extensions for exams!!!!
