These guides are to help you
be an active rather than a passive reader and listener, as well as to
give you some idea of what topics may be on exams. Answering the
questions is for your own benefit. Studying with a partner or a group
can be helpful, but unless you take an active role in understanding the
answers, you will miss out on the learning opportunity.
If you don't know an answer, try to figure it out. If it still isn't
making sense to you, then ask a classmate or your instructor.
