Interactive questions, using SkySpark / Axon

Be very careful how you answer questions in the exam, they are very tricky and wording/selections are not clearly reflected in the exam material. Other that that it is a nice course that does a good job walking you through using SkySpark.

We are glad you enjoyed the course Richard! Question wording is always something we're happy to review and improve as an ongoing effort.
