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 3 years ago.

Correct the last set of answers i received from that lady and they are all wrong. The first i have not submitted them becuase i don't want to get a bad grade again. 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.

 

 

Thank You

Expert:  Chris M. replied 3 years ago.
