*How many non-fiction books have you read in the last six months?
*You are going to a mill for an intensive period of work (it is their annual shutdown and your work can only be done during the shutdown).

As you sit in your office in an idle moment, you pick up the report you had done for the client (after all, you were very proud of it). You casually look at some of the calculations and, alarmingly, discover you made a serious mistake which will eventually cost the client hundreds of thousands of dollars.

*Just taking this test has opened my eyes to the life of the consultant.
