Labs can also identify areas where you need need help. If you are having trouble, get help! After you get help, try working through additional exercises to make sure you have mastered the concept.
When labs are available early, you are welcome to work ahead. However, please keep in mind that lab assignments and due dates are subject to change until they are actually assigned. Please check the following table and the news for the most recent information.
