Novice - totally lost

I just started a EE class and the teachers just threw up there without really explaining everything. Everyone's lost. I tried to Google, but couldn't find anything.

I have a breadboard, and I have a schematic I need to wire, but I do not really understand how to wire the VCC and ground (symbols). From what I've been told, VCC goes to power source positive, ground to power source negative. Is that right?

I'm sorry for the painfully stupid / obvious questions. Course textbooks come in two weeks and the teachers are overloaded.

Yes, Vcc is the plus of your supply (either a bench power supply or some batteries or something) and Ground goes to the minus of your supply.

Every point in the schematic labeled ground connects together, similarly with Vcc.
