1. Which of these conditions is a bad example?

...With reference to the Volkswagen technical manual,
...After the student solves ten problems using Ohm's Law,
...Given a United States Map with the capitals and states,

Remember that the condition phrase does not describe anything that leads up to the performance, such as any instructional activity or teaching strategy. The student solving ten problems describes an activity, it does not describe any resources that the learner will or will not be provided to accomplish the behavior.

2. Which of these is the best example of a good condition?

...Given a book,
...After the instructor's lecture on protons and neutrons,
...Given the periodic table of elements,

The purpose of a condition phrase for the learning objective is to clarify the main intent and to prevent any misunderstanding regarding the performance. "Given a book" is not specific enough and may cause confusion (which book?). " After the instructor's lecture..." describes what the instructor will do, not what the learner will accomplish.
