Hello Abe,
Some of my friends showed me a website where I can get help with some practice questions, but my old tutor said it might not be allowed. How do I know what I can and can’t use? What is the problem for me to use a website for homework help?

Dear Chegg Positive,
There are lots of websites and forums that students can join to get help with practice question, alternative textbooks, and a range of additional study help. Downloading or uploading answers, exams, or lecture notes can be considered “contract cheating”, especially where you have paid money to use the site or borrowed a paid log in from someone else. Similarly, sharing answers in facebook or other forums, is also considered academically dishonest. If you are not sure what is allowed and what is not, ask your tutor. Tell them specifically which site or forum you would like to use, and see what they say.
