Advice for students:
The beginning chapters are a bit complicated, but once you understand the material it gets easier towards the end. Make sure to read all discussion posts because classmates often have good feedback and offer perspectives that you may not have considered originally. Taking feedback from classmates, as well as the instructor, into consideration is extremely helpful in completing the finall paper.
