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.

When our mentoring partnership completes, this web page will serve as a useful and readily available reference for your use for years to come. Hang on to it. Remember, that the best way to learn to edit is to read some, edit some, ask questions, read some more, edit some more. You will find that you are frequently referring back to the wazeopedia. A good editor never assumes they know the answer to everything.
