Just wondering if anyone else has tried the MasterExam tests that come with the "kathy&bert" book.
I tried it tonight and was rather unhappy:
1) "pass" score is 800/1000 rather than the real test which is like 51% ?
(Yeah, I'd like to be scoring in the 80% range but I'm more like 70%)
2) When the test completed, it gave me a list of what questions I answered correctly and incorrectly, (And I used the supplied "save results" link) but I can't get back to that list...
There is a 'complete' answer key, but I would like to focus on the mistakes I made (obviously)
I hate to be negative -- I'm finding the book very helpful -- but the MasterExam thing -- you spend that much time taking the test, it would be nice to go back and work on the things you got wrong.
Any other experience out there? Am I missing something?
