I am very disppointed with this download. I thought I was getting some really good articles and ideas. I ddin't realise that it was just a tick yes or no rating basically. On rereading,I see that at the top it says 'assessments' It does say 'these articles'. I don't consider these to be articles. Definitely disappointing.
