Third conditional with present effectwould have and would

I read the following on a website and I was wondering if it was okay? Because the books only talk about the standard three forms. What would it mean if we changed the second part of the statement to 'wouldn't have been'?

If we talk about a past action and its result in the present we use if + past perfect and would not + infinitive:

If he hadn't done well on the training courses, he wouldn't be a Project leader now.

At the same time what is the different between the following:

If you had gone over that question in your note-book, would you be able to answer question No. 2?

If you had gone over that question in your note-book, would you have been able to answer question No. 2?
