I do like a part dedicated to the practice in your studying material, that prevents from a passive reading of the material and helps to apply a new knowledge right now or at least to try to do it. As well, it's a great technique to memorise new material, because I did remember my answers to your questions in the texts. I've just started my course so maybe later I can provide and share with you more my insights I'll discover.
