Concentrate on the web material. Make sure that you can work the problems that are worked out in the web material. Then make sure that you can work similar problems that are worked in the textbook and the workbook. Explore some of the links in bold text that are embedded in the web material. Complete the optional exercises for extra credit. After you have finished a module, complete the associated laboratory exercise.
