I did WTC. I felt pretty confident in my answers, though it did take a lot longer than I would have liked so we didn't get the chance to review each other's sections.

Yeah we didn't get to review each other's answers either. It was weird though because I think we got 1 hour to work on the test instead of 50 minutes... Also, congrats on first again! Have fun at the CDC!

Out of curiosity, how specifically was the event confusing? I know there was something about the 2x2 tables, but does anyone have any details?

I don't think I'm quite understanding how these tables were so confusing...could someone post a similar table here, or is this just something I would have to see to realize?

it was confusing in the sense that you didnt really know which people were the exposed/ unexposed, the test showed 2 groups of volunteers and said whether they did a certain task and whether they got asthma or whatever, but we were having trouble differentiating between the people who were/ weren't present on 9/11 so we didnt know how to complete the 2x2 table. to anyone else who did the WTC part of the DD test, did you have the same problem?
