Part A

Part B


There is no exercise for this section. We will be looking at your notes when you get to the Academy, and will make suggestions as needed.

If you have specific questions regarding your notetaking, you may ask them in an email to Mr. Ronald Grames - [email protected], or by calling him at (314) 889-8666.
