I have finished all of the questions in a certain subject. How can I reset the questions in that section?

We offer one free database reset per 6 month subscription. If you want to reset your database an additional time, we offer a paid database reset function for a nominal fee. Please note that your performance statistics are LOCKED once you reset your question database. In other words, your performance statistics will NOT be updated as you answer questions after you reset the database. We must do this to preserve the validity of the percentile rankings. We recommend that you wait to apply your database reset until you have completed all or most of the questions.
