When you need to know how to do something, there are several ways to find out what to do and how to do it.  You can read instructions, you can ask someone to explain it to you, or you can have someone show you how to do it.  Each of these methods can be effective, and depending on your needs, each one may work for the specific task in mind.  However, your mileage may vary, and often, the best method allows for a combination of instructional strategies.
