Pathology of Lymph Nodes Self Assessment

This is a javascript based self assessment quiz. You will be given feedback based on your answer via dialogue box, either "Correct" or "Wrong-Click link adjacent to question for relevant lecture section". The "link" adjacent to the question, will open up the Pathology of Lymph nodes lecture in a new window at the relevant section to assist you in getting you to the correct answer. After reading, go back to the test window. This is an ungraded exam, and no information is sent to me. However, there will be a link to your brainwaves established that will tell me what type of products you want to buy, and how much money you will be making ten years from now. Both are for sale. Enjoy.
