"Sage Advice."
Once you begin your NDT studies, do not stop. It is best to get thru the material while it is fresh in your mind. If you stop and go back you will not remember it all and will be lost, basically needing to start over. There is a lot of information, but if you get thru it quickly it all ties together, giving you the bigger picture.
