    Dear Mary:

    Many thanks for your query. The reason that the series was produced
    was to help further our audience's understanding of this most
    difficult topic area. The answers, as they stand, are correct.

    The answers to most of these pre-test questions are explored directly
    in the video, print or web materials so I hope that by the time you
    and your fellow workshop participants have completed the series that
    you have gained a broader confidence in this topic.

    How did you do on the post-workshop questionnaire?

    Kind regards:

    Clive A. Grainger
