    I was told not alot of brothers learn the Q&A and not just the Answers. I was wondering how many brothers really take the time to learn the Q&A, because it was alot of work. Thank you brothers.

    It just seemed easier for me to only learn the answers because sometime I have a problem with remembering things in sequential order. By someone asking me the questions, It was harder for me to jump out of place.

    However, now that I tutor my friends in their degrees, I wish I had learned it all in one shot. It's a Catch-22, get it over quick or do it right.

    I only gave back the answers but it was easier for me to memorize with the questions, it seemed to flow better like a song with the questions in it, granted I did not have to give back all 3 sections when I went through.

    My Lodge requires both Questions & Answers. The amazing benefit is that I was teaching an EA as I was learning my FC, LOL!

    I did both for the FC, and just the answers for the others.

    My teacher had a quad bypass in the middle of the whole process, kind of messed things up for a bit.

    Just answers for me.. originally thought it would be easier, though I learned most questions anyway through repetition. Once done with the EA, I could see I wanted to teach, and made it a point to become proficientin the questions of the previous degree as well.

    Teaching is a blast, and benefits everyone.

    There are no two alike.. ! have done this for a lot of years.. ! in most cases the major problem is getting them to Listen.. ! and not hear what they want to hear.. !

    Did Q&A in all three degrees. I wanted to examine myself because I was afraid that if I allowed someone else to ask me the questions, the slightest slip up on their part would trip me up.... I should have been more trusting and have learned to be so since.

    My Instructor wanted me to learn both so I could teach others. It was longer, and a bit harder, but well worth the effort. Now if I can't sleep at night, I go over the work, until I doze off or get all the way through it. I asked and answered the qiestions, but was offered help if I got stuck. in my MM, I studied 9 hours, before giving it. The last question I could not get the answer out right, and Brother Joe said something to the effect of "Dog gone it Hippie, that's not the way I have it, but you've said it three times, so you must be right!" I got it on the fourth try.... My shirt was soaked, and that seemed to be the hardest session.
