David writes totally fresh, totally original practice questions every week: a fresh set of three questions on Mon and Wed = 6 new practice questions per week. A few hungry customers like to follow along, so we post them here.
Paid members please note: you do not need to collect practice questions one at a time! After a chapter (or section of related chapters) is finished, Nicole collects them into a single PDF file and uploads to the Study Planner. Most paid members will want to go straight to the study planner (unless you want to discuss/etc in the forum). Thank you!
