Send Emails (only appears if there are emails waiting to be sent)
After the complete of the test, the test results will be sent to your email. But if you are not connected to the internet, the email can not be sent, so the results are saved. If you have the option to Send Emails, this means that there emails waiting to be sent. Pressing this button and having an internet connection, the emails will be sent and removed from the tablet.

After reading the test's instructions, you are presented with the questions and its answers. Choose the your answer by pressing the button. After you make your selection, the next question will be displayed and will do this until all questions have been answered. You must answer the question before moving to the next question. You may go back to previous questions by pressing the Previous button.
If you want to stop taking the test, you can press Cancel (top left corner). Cancelling the test will stop the test and no results will be saved.
