Mike's Practice Problems

Plat from 2009 Manual   (from 2009 Manual errata page,  for practice problems)

"...One thing I always stress to folks is that they should verify these answers for themselves - and don't take my word for it. I doubt the Board will accept "...because Hart said...." as a justification for an answer. This also gets me off the hook. The whole point of the practice problems is to make them aware of areas they may not fully understand and need to explore more for the exam - not to teach them how to work in the PLSS..."
