CAPTAIN OBVIOUS 
--------------- 
 
I'm working on another book, huge surprise.  Predictably it's a NICET 
test study guide.  As you know NICET has recently changed the way it 
tests using a computer-based method vs. paper-and-pencil.  Because the
new test severely limits the number of books permitted in the test to 
2 (3 for Level II), my question to you is this; what would you like to
see in my new book?  What would make it the perfect study guide for 
you? 
 
You input is greatly appreciated.
