What is the best approach to starting the Research Tutorial?
It is a lot of information, and you are right, there a lots of hyperlinks. Just so you know, we link specifically to the places you'll have to go in the future to do your research so you'll be familiar with it, that's the whole purpose of the tutorial. :)
The best approach is to have your Quiz printed out and go to the page listed (such as section 1. Research tutorial Mina Page), for each section of questions. In many cases you'll find the answers on the page. In some cases you actually have to use the resources to get the answers.
