Occupational Test PreparationHeading out of the library, a customer complains to her companion. "I can't find the book I need here," she says. "I'm going to order the book from Amazon.com. I hope it gets here on time!"

I catch her before she passes the reference desk. "What were you looking for?" I ask.

"I'm about to take my cosmetology exam and I need help in the nail technician section," she replies. "Y'all don't have what I'm looking for."
