    Tell her to P*ss off and do her own work. If she says no - she's using you..

    Learn to say no. You're not doing yourself or her any favours.

    Give her some example questions to do that you have not done before. Ask her to try to do them and help her through, showing her where she made mistakes and stuff like that. Do not give her your book, just tell her what she has done wrong by comparing her work to yours. Just don't correct her work, try to explain how to do it and she might get it and become less clingy to your work.

    This is an example of academic misconduct and at university would result in a disciplinary hearing. Not the sharing, the copying. Tell her to stop copying, and if she doesn't agree, then don't share.
