Lab problem-solver Exercises
We have discovered that if you truly wish to master a skill, nothing beats hands-on experience. To provide an opportunity to practice what you
learn within a context, we have created exercises throughout the series in which you apply your knowledge to various scenarios.
On Your Own exercises
We've included the lab feature to give you an opportunity to try these exercises in a live environment. You'll learn more about how to use
this exciting feature in a later lesson.
Although solutions to the problem-solver exercises will be submitted to tutors, you should also consider using the Discussion area as a forum
for sharing responses.
This course includes a number of On Your Own exercises. You will be able to complete these exercises on any Linux system running X Window
System. Although these exercises are not submitted to a tutor, your tutors are available to answer questions. In addition, we recommend that
you use your peers as a resource by taking advantage of the Discussion area.
In the next lesson, the prerequisites for this course will be discussed.
