Thanks for putting together these presentations! Generally, I have found them very informative and helpful. However, I would recommend that you give Mr. Baer the chance to re-record his sections. While he is certainly qualified to talk about these credits, his oration gets somewhat difficult to follow later in the presentation, such as at the Building Product Disclosure and Optimization topics and later. It sounds as though he was perhaps getting tired, and his diction becomes rote and monotone, his cadence awkward. As an audience member, this makes it hard to concentrate on these topics, which have a good deal of specific important details. But aside from this one complaint, many thanks to him and the other presenters for contributing!

Is there a way for me to see which question in the Quiz that I did not get right?

Hi Ting,

There is not currently a way to see which questions you got wrong. However, you may retake the quiz as many times as you'd like.

Thanks!

FYI, your slide downloads are incorrectly labeled. The 3 per page and 1 per page are backwards.

Hi Donna,

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. The slides have now been correctly labeled.

Subject and video not exciting for me. Quiz on topic. Only quiz of the 5 on this topic that I got a 100% on.

OMG. Very poorly conceived topics & quiz not on topic. Yawn.
