They are relevant to each other because they complete each other. You can’t have one without the other. It would feel like an incomplete movie if you didn’t use both. 2.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
