Having a Mentor puts you in a situation where you are directly in contact with someone who is more familiar with EF, the community, the review program, and writing reviews. So instead of bouncing around confused in some cases, you can ease into the community and the review program. Of course everyone is different and everyone likes to approach things differently. But, someone who wants to learn the ropes from a pro, the option is there.
