Hi all,
Just a question about the Wiley Sybex online question bank - there are 3 practice exams on there..is it just me or do your scores/attempts never get saved for these or the end of chapter questions?

I just spent 1.5 hrs doing practice test 1 - the program froze in some places, skipped 4 questions, didn't allow me to step backwards to previous questions and din't give me the option to go back and look at my marked questions. Once i then submitted for grading, whilst i was reviewing my answers and the correct answers, it timed out. Logging back in I realised that not only does it not save any history.

Is there a way round this?

Also are the questions in each of the 3 tests separate/independent of each other?


thanks!

Hi,
Please report the freezing/skipping to Wiley tech support at https://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/Section/id-302036.html.

It definitely isn't supposed to do that! The questions in all three exams are different from each other. Some seem similar but are subtly different. We do that on purpose to make it harder to memorize the answers (so you can take the test more than once and still learn something)

Thanks Jeanne. That link isn't working for me

And thanks for the clarification! And am I right in thinking that history of scores etc aren't saved for our accounts?

Correct.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
