Introduction

Below you will see a section titled "Next Lesson". The material that is listed there is expected to be studied (vice read). Early on the material will be fairly easy and you should have a good grasp just by reading. As we go forward, the material gets more challenging. You don't have to have a working level of the material after reading. I encourage you to write down your questions, and either ask me during a mentoring session or even outside of a mentoring session. Additionally, you are encouraged (and expected) to interact with other editors so that you can maximize your learnings -- So ask other editors questions about things you are unsure of. By all means, make sure that unanswered questions are resolved in one way or another.
