i wouldnt go as far to say that these Soldiers, or any Soldiers are/can cheat on the SSD courses... it is a open book/browser course.
so if it is open book/browser.. can you really cheat?
If you are taking screen shots of answers, that would be a form of cheating as well.....
Honestly, how i did the course was open the SSD up in mozilla, and open up Internet Explorer. the reason for this is if you open the SSD course in IE, it wont allow you to copy the questions, where as Mozilla will allow you to copy the question. copy and paste it into IE to look up the answer or article that you can find a better explantion for the answer.
alot of the questions can be answered with just common knowledge
