Read these sections right away, before you start your homework. It’s best if you read this material one or two days before the first session. As you read, you might encounter some ideas or concepts that don’t make much sense or seem a little confusing. Don’t puzzle over these things. Make a list, and then, as you read the corresponding session notes, many of your questions will be answered.

The first homework assignment has a fair amount of reading attached to it. Some students feel that the best approach is to read it all, and then try to do the homework. For most of us, such an approach doesn’t work very well.
