There are lots of ways to get help in this course—here are three big tips:

  1. Read the website: make sure you read the stuff on this course website. In particular, you should know about the course policies and the stuff discussed at Resources and Important Information.
  2. Start your assignments early: you probably hear this a lot, but you’ll save yourself a lot of pain if you start the assignments early.
  3. Ask good questions on the forum: you’re probably not the only one with the same question, so if you ask it there then others can benefit as well. Learning how to ask good questions is a useful skill in this course and beyond, and this course gives you a chance to practice that skill :)
