Do you have to do all the exercises in order, or does it matter as long as you complete them?

Ideally all the exercises should be done in order however this doesn't have to be a case set in stone

For example the back catalogue exercises do not follow on from one-another so doing those in order doesn't really matter so much

And doing 'personal tools' before 'world religions' hardly matters either etc...

There are organisational advantages to doing the lessons in order, however if at the top of each section you clearly mark which lesson it is you shouldn't have much of a problem with keeping track (and letting us see) which lessons you've done

You might get more out of it doing the work in order, but if you are struggling with a particular lesson then you can always seek help (I'm available via pm, chat etc) or you can come back to it later if it is really hindering you for whatever reason

Ultimately an initiate will have done all of the exercises and that is what is important

N.B. it doesn't sound stupid :)

there's an old saying: the only stupid question is the one you don't ask...

so if you ask any question, then it is not a stupid akkarin pointed out, there is no set order to the lessons as long as you label them properly...nothing more confusing than trying to evaluate an initiates journal and having to guess what lesson it is that you're reading...again there is a sort of flow from one lesson into the next if done in order, but then surfing isn't much fun on a flat ocean...and again all of us knights/masters are available as resources for assistance, as are most of our members...
