Overall, the presentation is a good resource for drill and practice.  Though for students who may have difficulty reading or hearing, one might want to add sound to the slides.  Also, some directions could be displayed or read aloud to the learner to lessen confusion regarding what is to be done when the presentation begins.  Special effects embedded in the wording might distract the learner.  Addtionally, the slide for question 7 within the quiz had wording that went off the screen, which results in the  learner not being able to read the question completely. Finally, the presentation was very colorful and had very good information for the learner.

Technical Remarks:

Each of the slides connected to the correct slide. All links worked. However, some of the special effects made it a little distracting and time consuming.
