Again, another great guide, guys. Also, this is a solid prerequisite. I noticed when reviewing this one that you did a good job of indicating which tools to use and when. Your markup is clear and concise, and your writing is not overly technical and complicated. Your photos and action steps are also very clear. You did a great job this semester!

P.S. -- I'm not sure if we're actually supposed to post our reviews as comments here. You may not want them on your guides! If I'm mistaken here, don't hesitate to remove them. I'm submitting through Canvas as well.
