Now that you have gone through the Step-by-Step exercises, it's time to practice what you have learned. The following exercises will not have as much detail in the directions.

Look back at the Step-by-Step pages if you need a refresher on how to do something. There are new methods and information in these exercises. They are not just review!

The Internet is a rapidly moving target. Pages and sites come and go without notice. Rather than give you a list of specific places to go in order to see certain features, you will be looking yourself throughout the Internet to find sites that match the descriptions.

Some items will be entirely too easy to find. Some will require a lot of digging, or some good luck. You can start with the links on My Home Page. But don't stop there! Have fun with this, but don't lose track of what you are looking for. There is so much fascinating material on the Internet, it is easy to get sidetracked.

Dive right in!
