    2. Today's Daily Questions

      David writes totally fresh, totally original practice (quiz) questions every week: a fresh set of three (4) from Mon to Thursday = 12 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, Suzanne 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!
