  19. 19.  Advanced Reading Concepts 2006 “ Greetings Bonnie, It was excellent to speak with you after 20 years . You worked with me via a City of Columbus NMA session in 1988 and it made all the difference in my career . I gained the confidence needed to start studying and sit for the Ohio Architectural Registration exam. The skills that counted the most were my ability to concentrate, read, comprehend accurately, retain the knowledge and recall in order to make correct choices and decisions . Respectfully, Conrade C. Hinds, Architect
