Hi Mitchell - congratulations on your most recent course completion! Regarding the questions in the assessments -- one technique we suggest is to first read the question, then jump into the related tutorial to determine your answer. Before submitting your answer, read the question again to ensure it makes sense given the context and root of the question. Our team of Learning Coaches is here to provide support and clarification as needed as you go through the course. Thank you!— Mike F. | Sophia Learning Coach
