General vs. Advanced


Six of the 8 Strategy Guides (all the math books, as well as Sentence Correction) have a division between Part 1
(General) and Part 2 (Advanced). In Part 2, the Advanced material from several topics is sometimes combined into one
chapter.
The basic order is to do the General work first, completely, before moving to Advanced material. That is, do the General
reading, the General In Action problems, and the General OG problems (at least some of them) BEFORE moving to the
Advanced reading, In Actions and OG problems.
Advanced chapters or sections are NOT separately assigned in the Syllabus above. You will have to determine when you
are ready to take on this Advanced material, which may not be necessary for all students. Attempt Advanced sections
only if you have completed the General chapters and are comfortable with their content.

Syllabus vs. Weekly Planners vs. Study Organizer


The Syllabus above, the Weekly Planners, and the Study Organizer spreadsheet follow the same overall
sequence of assignments, although they differ in the amount of detail shown.
The Study Organizer provides the most detailed schedule, including specific Official Guide problems for you to do. These
problems are a subset of the complete Official Guide problem lists contained in the Strategy Guides.
If you use the Syllabus or the Weekly Planners, refer to the Official Guide problem lists in each Strategy Guide.
