This section offers practice tests in several subject areas. Each of the following multiple-choice tests has 10 questions to work on. No sign-up required, just straight to the test.
The key to a contract is that there must be an offer, and acceptance of the terms of that offer. An offer is a proposal made to demonstrate an intent to enter a contract. Acceptance is the agreement to be bound by the terms of the offer. Offers must be made with intent, must be clearly expressed for it to be enforceable, and must be communicated unambiguously. An acceptance must demonstrate the willingness to consent to all of the terms of the offer in good faith.
A genuine agreement, also known as a meeting of the minds, is also required. Agreements can be destroyed by fraud, misrepresentation, unintentional mistakes, duress, or undue influence. Some measure of consideration must be included in contracts, a standard of value promised in exchange for something else of value, although not necessarily in monetary terms. This mutual exchange binds the parties together in a contractual obligation.
Capacity to contract is the next element required for a valid agreement. The law presumes that anyone entering a contract has the legal capacity to do so. Minors are generally excused from contractual responsibility, as are are mentally incompetent and drugged or drunk individuals. Finally, parties entering into contracts that involve illegal conduct may not expect judicial relief to have that contract enforced. This theory has also been applied to conduct that would be considered in opposition to public policy.

Amazon Big Data
No company stores more data than Amazon, with a giant market share in online business sales. Amazon is a AI software machine that can simultaneously observe, compare and analyze more than 300 million people worldwide.
Google Adsense & Adwords
Google Analytics may take some time to link correctly to your Adsense account. However, after you get the code working, this free stats package displays great graphs, going far beyond the number of visitors to your page, into user flow, what links they clicked on, how long they stayed, bounce rate, the percent of repeat visitors, search traffic, referral traffic, and much more.
In general, Google Adwords is the sister story to Adsense. Businesses of all sizes use dwords to display their ads on the first page of Google, paying for each click they receive. There's a bidding process, so keyword phrases like "life insurance" or "mortgage refinance" are worth up to several dollars per click. For anything loan-related, lawsuits, or any other business that is well-adapted to sales or completion online, you can expect a high click value.
Project Management Professional (PMP)
Most projects, even at successful companies, tend to go over budget and take longer than projected—even with formal training, specialized tools and automated software. The project management certificate program teaches proven strategies and practical, hands-on tools to drive successful project outcomes. Learn how to scope projects effectively, set key milestones, improve resource allocation, and get the project done. Processes covered within the project management certificate program include agile methodologies and earned value management (EVM). The concepts, tools, and language of project management can be applied to any size or type of project.
PMP certification description: to be eligible for a PMP Credential, you must first meet specific educational and project management experience requirements, and agree to practice a code of professional conduct. You must also pass a rigorous multiple-choice examination designed to objectively assess your ability to apply project management knowledge in the following six domains: initiating the project, planning, executing the project, monitoring and controlling inputs and costs, and completing projects successfully. The Certified Project Risk Management (CPRM) designation recognizes professional analysts who meet the requirements of managing risk teams and leading project managers.
Business administration majors learn the fundamentals of business, how businesses operate, how to analyze a businesses’ strengths and weaknesses, how to create organizational strategies. Typical coursework for this program includes operations management, financial management, management information systems, accounting, business statistics, business ethics and law, business policy and strategy, economics, human resources management, international management and marketing. With an associate degree, you will be eligible for a trainee position in retail or sales, for example. Other possibilities include a position as a project coordinator or perhaps an office manager or clerical clerk. If you desire a higher ranking position, such as an administrative management role, a bachelor’s degree is typically recommended.
