Peter's Paragraph:
I am not sure what is the best thing to do about ensuring that you do an appropriate amount of practice exercises. Probably you are all doing an appropriate amount at the moment, but it is hard for me to know. Ultimately I believe you can each be the best judge of whether you have done enough. I think you should probably have the expectation that you should do quite a number of extra problems beyond the ones you hand in. It is important to keep doing exercises beyond the stage at which you can first do them easily: after you can do a question of a certain type, do a couple more. In the lists of problems this week, I include all the questions in the book that make sense to me. They are all worth looking at, but it may be legitimate for you to skim some of them, just looking to see whether you can do them, and if you are confident that you can do them then move on. This can be a matter for your own judgement.
