WHY PRINT THE EXAM & DOWNLOAD BOOKS?
Short Answer: Compared to other web systems, with our method you finish the course quicker, spend less
time online, get a copy of the book for reference and have a paper back-up of your answers . . . just in case!
Long Answer: Printing out the exam and saving the book to your computer means you can relax and finish the
course offline at your own pace, without spending hours and hours on the internet; you’ll have a readily avail-
able copy of the book for your library in case you need to refer to it; and, you eliminate the constant switching
between an exam screen and a book screen . . . a big hassle that can add hours to completing an online
course. We know, we’ve timed it! Some internet courses suggest using an online split screen to view the
exam and book at the same time. Well, it sounds complicated, and unless you have a super, giant screen,
the print is going to be tiny and unreadable for most people. Finally, a good reason for printing the exam and
marking your answers is you have a paper back-up if your computer or the internet freezes . . . and, we’ve all
been there!
