This is an advanced course in computer science and object
oriented programming in C++ with an emphasis on algorithm
development, programming techniques, Object Oriented
design, pointers, data representation, debugging, and
program verification. "
Linked lists are not generally thought of as an "advanced" CS
topic. They're generally covered in a first year course, rather
than a second year course. Perhaps that's why it wasn't
covered as well as you would have liked.

Did you try going to the office hours and ask the professor?
That's what they're there for. That's what I suggested
when I tought a course (Programming Language
Concepts, Spring 2001 @ UNC). How about e-mailing
the TA or the professor? They're there for a reason.
In addition, the course syllabus clearly states:
"All assignments for this course must be independent and
individual creations of the student. Students who submit
plagiarized or collaborative work will be subject to penalties
through the university judicial system which can be as
severe as an F in the course and/or an academic warning
and/or suspension from the university."
How do you justify asking for help here with the clear prohibition
against "collaborative work"?
I don't mean to discourage people asking for help on the
trilug mailing list, but lots of professors can get very picky
(with good reason) about students' homework.
