  • I'd love feedback from this powerpoint...this is actually my first upload to this site.

    I'm trying to figure out if it will be useful to make my power point presentations available here. Also, I've always used these shows with oral presentations and here they will need to be 'stand alone' without an oral presentation...now sure if that will fly.
