Each of the chapters ahead will improve your skills on making use of the web. You don’t have to read them in any particular order, but the way I’ve written them made sense to me, so why not go with it? If you’re determined to pick something up without waiting, I’d suggest checking out chapter 8 (making the text your own). The biggest complaint everyone has about students using the web is that all too often they just cut a piece of text out of a website and paste it into their work. It’s little more than stealing, and most teachers and lecturers can spot it.
