Mary Martin Said: Very good. It would have been nice to have been able to save the information once it was typed in. That is a function of adobe as I understand but I think there is a software version that allows you to save a protected document. Other than that it was perfect. Also the link to this url did not work in your e mail. So I was required to paste and copy the link in my browser. That is going to keep some folks from submitting the form itself to offer comments. All total 7 out of 10. A C if I were your Professor.
