LESSON EXERCISE QUESTIONS
Instructions for use of the answer sheet:
1. The procedure by which you will answer the exercise questions in this subcourse
is probably new to you. The information is presented in a programmed instruction
format where you immediately know whether or not you have answered the questions
correctly. If you have selected an incorrect answer, you will be directed to a
portion of the study text that will provide you with additional information.
2. Arrange this subcourse booklet and your answer sheet so that they are
convenient. Each exercise question has three choices lettered a, b, and c. Your
answer sheet has three groups of numbers for questions 1 through 200. The numbers
indicated for each question represent the a, b, or c choices. The exercise
response list is enclosed with this subcourse. It contains a listing of 3-digit
numbers in numerical sequence. Each number is followed by a response that either
reinforces a correct answer or gives you additional information for an incorrect
To use this system proceed as follows:
a. Read the first exercise question and select the choice you think answers
the question correctly. Go to the question 1 area of your answer sheet and circle
the 3-digit number that corresponds with the choice you selected.
b. After you have identified the 3-digit number, locate it in the exercise
response list. If you selected the right choice, the first word of the response
will be "CORRECT. " This tells you that you have answered the question correctly.
Read the rest of the response which tells why your choice was correct and then go
to the next question.
c. If the word "CORRECT" is NOT the first word of the response, you have
selected the wrong answer. Read the rest of the response and then turn to the area
in your study text that is mentioned. There you will find the information
necessary for you to make another choice. Be sure to read all of the response
because it will help you select the correct answer and it also provides more
information. Line out the incorrect 3-digit response on your answer sheet.
d. After you have reread the reference, select another answer and circle the
3-digit response for that choice. Again check the number of this second choice
with the response list to see if your choice is now correct and to obtain more
information about your choice. If your second choice in still not correct, line
out the 3-digit response on the answer sheet and continue until the correct answer
is selected. When you have answered all of the questions in an exercise, count the
number of lined out responses and see how well you did.
4. You will notice that the lesson exercise question numbers continue
consecutively from lesson to lesson. This allows you to use one answer sheet for
the entire subcourse.
5. After you have finished the exercise questions for all lessons, fold and seal
the answer sheet so that the USAOC&S address is on the outside. Drop the answer
sheet in the mail so the school will know you have completed the study portion of
the subcourse and are now ready for the examination.
