Never Waste an Incorrect Answer on Learn Practice!
To get the most out of Learn Practice, you don't need to know the correct answer to every question. Actually, quite the opposite is true. Every incorrect answer on Learn Practice is a learning opportunity.
When you don't know the answer to a question, answer it with your best guess. You can do that as many times as you want until you find the correct answer or give up and click on the "Show the answer" link.
In either case, your first incorrect answer is registered as an incorrect attempt in the system, so that you can review that question at the end of the quiz or later via your profile.
Show Hints for a Clue or an External Resource
Some questions have a "Show hint" link, which is displayed when you answer them incorrectly. Click on it for a clue about the question.
Some hints refer to external sources such as taaladvies.net. If you come across such hints, take the time to read those resources to gain more insight on the topic.
When you click on the "Show answer" link, the system will display the correct answer and the hint if there is one.
Type in the Correct Answer to Memorize It
When you show the answer, you can type in the correct answer. This is a recommended practice as it helps memorizing the correct answer.
Questions answered after the first attempt won't be saved as correct questions in your profile, which is good for you because they are saved in you incorrect question collection so that you can study them later.
If you don't feel like typing in the correct answer, you can always click the "Move to the next question" link to display the next question.
You can learn a lot from your incorrect answers on Learn Practice, but in order to maximize your benefits from the system, you need to sign up and stay signed in when solving questions.
That way, the system keeps track of your past performance and serves you with the questions accordingly.
