Course Information

Throughout the course lessons, there will be a series of various questions; true/false, search drills, general application and multiple-choice.

Note:  The research drills provide a series of quotes taken from RONR and the Student is asked to find the page of reference for the exact quotes.  This will help the student to become familiar with the Index and develop your search capabilities in the event that you are asked to assist with a ruling by the Chair.  As well, once you find the exact quote, the Student is asked to use this quote and provide a scenario where this may be applied.
