Many people have requested advice on how to use Divine Worship: Daily Office (Commonwealth Edition) and here we have gathered together some excellent resources that you might find useful.
The Eastbourne Ordinariate Mission have produced and excellent Potted Précis of how to pray the Offices, either in a short form or in the Prayer Book tradition. They say that "It’s for laypeople: clergy know what to do!"
The advice is excellent and very helpful from how to use the ribbons to how to pray the Office: "the ribbons are designed to make things easier as they guide you through the year. And it doesn’t actually matter if you make a mistake: you’ve still prayed and read Scripture! If you do find you’ve got something wrong, just put the ribbons in the right place for next time."

The Ordinariate in Perth, Australia,
have produced a series of excellent YouTube videos.
They are a workshop by seminarian Nigel McBain, of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross.
The series gives a little of the history and background of the
Office as we now have it now in Divine Worship: Daily Office (Commonwealth Edition).
He offers a definition of the two ways of saying the Office - the Simple Form and what Nigel calls the Ample Form.
