  • To access the chapters click Contenido. 
  • If you begin your exercises on one computer and finish on a different one, the exercises you did on the first computer will not appear on the second computer. Remember--your exercises will not be saved onto your CD-ROM, but rather onto the hard drive of the computer on which you are working.
  • You jump ahead to the Test Menu at the end of the chapter by clicking the double forward arrows >> on the audio/video control bar. 
  • You jump back to the beginning of the chapter by clicking the double rewind arrows << on the audio/video control bar.
  • You skip ahead one dialog box by clicking the single forward arrow > on the audio/video control bar.
  • You may repeat the current dialog box by clicking the single rewind arrow < on the audio/video control bar. If you want to go back further, you must click on the double rewind arrows << (which will take you back to the beginning of the chapter), and then, click on the single forward arrow > until you get to where you want to be.
  • Pay attention to how you log in the first time and log in the exact same way every time.
     
  • When you finish a set of exercises and have gotten a perfect score, you will see a box with an arrow that says, "You scored a perfect 7 out of 7." You must click on the arrow in order for your score to be recorded to the Test Menu. Do not click Next or Test Menu before clicking on the arrow or you will get a zero.
  • When you finish a set of exercises and have not gotten a perfect score, you will see a box says, "Would you like to retest?" You must click NO in order for your score to be recorded to the Test Menu. Do not click Next or Test Menu before clicking NO or you will get a zero.
