Prof Diverse379,

Hi,

I regret to inform you that I will not be able to make it to class for today's test.  I've come down with a horrible cold.  It started late last night after I came home from work.  I would have emailed you then but I thought that maybe I'd feel better in the morning.  Will I be able to do a make up test?

Thank you for your time,

Kodacolor

I feel you kodacolor and anyone else who feels like this test is a lot

I didnt expect to write this much

But God wants you all to know that you have a great charge
and I want to encourage you that you dont need to know everything

but it is important to know what you need to know and to know what you do know so you can grow

so everyone be encouraged

the test is broken down into small sections

so take a section and see how you answer that

it wasnt designed to hinder you

but maybe humble a little
because through humility comes exaltation

thats biblical

To be or not to be that is the question you anwer when you pray practice and read your word

I know.  I was just being extra.  I can't take this test right now because I just play.  I don't know the theory behind it.  I just got the basic basic number system yesterday.
