Hola everybody,

the PREP this weekend is to catch up;

  • completing the pre-readings and questions are the most important.
  • then make sure your glossary is up to date, this is second in importance.

Beyond that we can do the rest pretty quickly if you do all of this stuff, email me if you get stuck on a question and I will help out.
