    Dave will help you through it before the test (did mine with Andy), don't sweat it. A good part of the test is to answer questions in the right way- that information is provided on day 1. You have a practice session identifying problems and then provide management options. If youve worked that long and understood why you're doing what you're doing, you'll do fine.

    You don't need to be left-handed to burn holes in yourself, most of us have managed it at one time or another. See, this is what's wrong with the world today. a minority wants everything changed to suit them
