Hey Chris its James. Per the last question I have rated you excellent as usual because of your professionalism and on time posting. This is the question to initiate week 3's individual assignment due 8/6/13. Week 3 syllabus attached.
Hello Chris hope your weekend is going well. Just doing my normal check in and to see how week 3's homework assignment is going. Have a good day.
I see you have not yet received a response to this. Please let me know if you would like to open this to all professionals. Thank you.
