    Asking for help with a question is one thing. Pasting the entire test is cheating. If you are using these answers, imagine how many other students are as well. It does not take long for a teacher to recognize when the same answers come up in 5-10 essays. You signed an academic honor code. The CA teachers are available to you for help. Just call! Try watching live lesson recordings, reading the material, and using the study guides.
