    set them all straight/ got it down

    Dear teachers,


    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?


    So, did you set them all straight on the ugly facts of life?
    I gave the feeling they got it down already. They’re a step ahead of us, Artie.

    set someone straight = to make certain that someone knows the real facts about a situation


    get it down already = know it already


    Thank you for your efforts.


    Regards,


    V
