It seems as though this training would be better served to address the benchmarks that are measured in the knowledge check

along with mixing the questions up throughout the course, you might want to randomize the answers within each question. easy to memorize the questions from the sample knowledge check points. Lastly, it indicates i passed, but what was my score. did i miss any? don't know without knowing my final score.
