THE HONEST TRUTH

I hope that this web site has provided you with enough
information so that you can make your own way. However, if you run into a problem or
mystery that you cannot figure out then try asking people in-the-know, such as professors,

during my senior year I quickly put all the information that I knew about breaking into
the field in this site. If you cannot find it here then look in the references or sites
listed in this site.
