Default Need better introduction to trying example code

On p87...
Any discussion of "The Loop" doesn’t explain where to look for the code in the theme. So, where it says
"To learn how template tags work, just place any template tag inside the Loop and view the results. The following example views the values of a couple different template tags:"
isn’t particularly helpful. In which file should this be placed and what URL would I use to access it? We haven’t been introduced to the theme structure enough to know what to change and how to see the results of our changes. Do you modify the root "index.php"? The "index.php" in the current theme? Create a brand new file? Where would we put the file and how would we access it?

In many of the pages following this there are example of code, but what is the best way to actually run the examples and see the output?
