    Default use of the term 'technological advance'

    Hi there,

    I came across this sentence:
    "...except in a few cases, their suggestions did not yield significant results in terms of technological advance."

    Shouldn't it be "... technological advancement."?

    Thanks!

    Default Re: use of the term 'technological advance'

    You could use 'advancement' or 'advances' there for me, but the singular does sound a bit odd.
