Hello Chrissy,

I did use an old answer set that I had on file. I was pretty sure I had answered these from the .pdf file study guide info., but I may have researched some of the questions and got wrong answers that were formerly given. Are you saying the second set of answers are all incorrect ? What about exam #05067000? Have you submitted that one? Do you need me to recheck those answers also?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

But i did get them from the same lady and if you notice the student that she gave them to also failed. So just let me know what you fine out. The reason their are only 3 answers to the last set is becuase the other's were the wrong answers.
