    Default FF I & II Help needed

    Just started my classes. They will be completed untill July. For those who have been through it which will be most everyone here how did you retain all this and what period of time did the study span? I am considering an online pre test that can be subscribed to just as a added bonus for knowledge retention. Would this be necessary in your opinion?

    Default stay ahead

    As an instructor for 17+ years I've found the biggest problem is students falling behind. Try to read the material before class, that way the lecture is somewhat of a review and opportunity to ask questions.
    good luck

    I would have to agree with many of the statements made above. Keep up with the reading and the kightlite software is very helpful and simple to use.
