Actually, that's a misnomer. If you are plotting effort on the x axis and knowledge on the Y axis, I think you're trying to say it's a "shallow" learning curve. But that doesn't sound right. And I'm the kind of guy who bristles at the wrong use of the phrase "begging the question" so I guess you can call me a grammar Nazi. LOL Thank you very much for your help. Will be working on this over the summer. I am slated to start in January but it might pull back to September.
