Although this chapter does cover a good amount of information, our instructors have separated the chapter into bite-sized lessons to avoid overloading you with information. Each short, manageable lesson focuses on a single concept. Additionally, each lesson can stand on its own, so you don't have to review every lesson in the chapter if you don't want to. You can skip around and examine the lessons in any order you want, and you can always go back over the lesson materials at any time. Furthermore, since each lesson is so short in duration, you can easily fit in more study time throughout your day.
