I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

VA math is not linear.  They use a formula to determine percentage.  I normally use this calculator to help me calculate.
