    Testbook? You may well be right. Maybe it does both.

    Last time I took Sandy to a dealership, I had to leave her with them all day because it took the morning for them to setup Testbook, then a quick 30 minutes to actually find the issue. The guy who did the job was fair, but he admitted when I arrived it was the first time he'd used Testbook for about 10 years, so outright forgot how.
