It's time to test your system's sound settings and ability to play Flash files via your browser.

How's the Course Presented?

An animated story, set in the old West, illustrates the DRB process and operation. Now, take a look at the interface you'll be using.

The Back and Next buttons are used throughout the course to move to the next or previous page. Please note that when viewing an interactive exercise, the Back and Next buttons are hidden until the exercise is successfully completed.

The Progress Bar appears with each animated scene and can be clicked on at any point to move forward or back through the animation. The Play and Pause buttons allow you to pause and resume each animated scene at your leisure.

A drop-down menu is located in the upper-left hand corner. To access the menu, move your cursor over the word Menu and the options will slide into view as shown below.



When you are ready to begin, click the Start the Course button, the course will launch in a new Flash window.
