What do you do if you must stop suddenly in an emergency?
If your vehicle has abs brakes, just apply the brakes hard and steer away from danger. If the vehicle does not have abs brakes, try to apply the brakes without locking up the wheels and going into a skid then steer away from danger. If you lock up the brakes and go into a skid you will lose control of your steering.

If you drive through water your brakes may become slippery and ineffective to dry the brakes off?
It was recommended to me to apply the brakes while driving through a puddle because having the shoes or pads pressing against the drums or disc will help keep water out. Is this True?
No, that is not true. Water is going to get on the rotor and on the pads no matter what you do. This water will quickly evaporate once you apply the brakes. Even if you do not apply the brakes centrifugal force will remove the water as you drive. Once you apply the brakes the heat created will remove the water very quickly. You may experience a slight loss of good braking the first time you apply the brakes after going through water which is normal.
Does the law of constant composition apply to solutions?

How do you release the back brakes on a astra van there coming on before the front ones?
your back brakes are supposed to apply before your front brakes, they do this so your car does not take a nose dive every time you apply the brakes. but if it is very noticeable i would check the adjustment of your rear brakes (if you have a disc/drum setup) or i would check your proportioning valve if they are locking up
