1. Although I know most of you did already, it is most effective when you do not look forward through the book. Start at the beginning and go through it page by page. It was created in this sequence for a reason.
2. If you are able to do a few of the questions with a group of people like your weekly Bible Study group, I think you will find it very insightful. At the beginning of each class I teach, I do two or three of these questions with the students to find out how they are thinking. I divide the class into groups of 3-4 people, read a question, and have them answer the question as a group. I also ask them to find a scriptural precedent for the answer they chose. Then I ask them the next question. After they have settled on their answers, we share them, find out their reasons for choosing them, and then read the comments for that question. I always learn so much by getting insights from different people with different backgrounds.
