I signed up to take the state-mandated 16-hour contractor's course so that I could be a contractor in the state of Oregon. This was a home study course on a CD which I used in my computer. One piece of paperwork that came with the course was titled "How to Use This Program". Whoever wrote this paper wasn't being particularly careful about grammar. One sentence in the paper started off, "To maximizes your steady time..." and another read, "There is two ways to find the answer to a question."

Later on, when talking about taking the test, the paper admonishes, "Read every question very carefully as every word might make a difference."
