Quiz

Is this quiz really only a 3 question test after having watched the very informative video? 39 minutes to answer 3 questions?!? The first time I attempted the quiz, I was booted out and told I'd failed right in the middle of taking it. The video was jam packed with useful information but the quiz leaves a lot to be desired.
