    I'm taking classics this semester and between each class, we have a reading. Monday, after class, the read was posted online, exactly like the prof. said it would be. Fantastic. I read it, took notes and was ready for class Wednesday. Wednesday after class, the reading wasn't there. Thursday, still not there. Friday's tutorial was cancelled and the reading still isn't here... He seemed pretty specific about reading from the pieces he posts. But I'm not seeing a post.

    I don't know anyone else in the class or I would ask them what they're doing about it. The reading's for next week's lectures are Hesiod "Theogany" and Homer, "Iliad" book 1. Is it okay if I just find any translation online. Or should I specifically make sure I get the version the prof wanted.

    In all likelihood, I'm overreacting. But I haven't been in school for years and this is my first class back. I don't want to wind up reading twice as much as necessary. But I also don't want to wait until I run out of time. What would you do?

    Damn. And I was hoping not to be a nuisance.

    Don't worry about being a nuisance, his/her job is to answer your questions! Normally they take quite well to students who actually want to do the work like you do!
