    64% I FAILED. I guess I should open the Physics books from High school. I ran through thinking I was doing OK. Oh well. These damn computers have been sucking any bit of intelligence that I used to have. I feel like I am slowly getting dumber now that I have been out of school for more then a year. I swear I have to find some time to start reading more.

    Surprised myself, got a 90 the only time. I had to wing it on the schematics. I know basicly nothing about them. Afraid to try it again, might get dumber! lol

    94.....the ones I had trouble with were the triple pulley, and the planetary gears. On the planet gears, I could not understand what the two most likely answers actually meant, because they said the same thing.

    It did seem to get excited when I answered the triangles-on-a-teeter-totter question correctly.

    Ouch. 72%.
    It's been a long time since I worked with electrical schematics/wiring diagrams. Guess I better brush up before I rewire my car.
    The gear stuff was fun though.

    I'm not even going to try because I'll be the first to tell you I'm an idiot when it comes to anything mechanical.

    You can see which ones you got wrong or right by going to the Show/Hide TOC button that is on the opposite side of the page to the submit button on question pages. It will pull up the table of contents. I am guessing you don't get a green check if its wrong.
