Readiness Review assessment answer incorrect On the Readiness Review assessment there is a question which has an incorrect answer marked as correct and incorrect wording on an answer that should be correct. The question reads: "You are creating a Windows Forms application that accesses a Windows service. On application startup you must check that the service is available. What should you do? 1. Iterate through all processes returned by the Process.GetProcesses method and look for the desired service. 2. Use reflection to locate an Installer-derived class in the assembly that implements the Windows service. Call the Installer.Install method. 3. Iterate through the devices returned by the System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController.GetServices method and look for the desired process. 4. Iterate through the devices returned by the System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController.GetDevices method and look for the desired process." The correct answer should be 3, however the answer should be changed to: "3. Iterate through the devices returned by the System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController.GetServices method and look for the desired service. Make sure that the status indicates a running service."
