Looking at http://www.entityframeworktutorial.net/code-first/configure-many-to-many-relationship-in-code-first.aspx, there is generated a table between Course and Students called CourseStudents. How would I go about manipulating and querying that table for information on relations between Course and Students?

In your link above that is doing what I suggested in your previous question.  An intermediate table with two 1:n relationships.

To use it.  Well you can make a query to show all the courses a student has visited, or all the students that visit a course....

Yes, that is true. But I don't see how the cardinality is enforced there in entity framework.
Thanks for the reply, but this answer should have been in the other thread at https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28968035/Entity-Framework-Code-first-Specify-minimum-one-cardinality-in-a-many-to-many-relation.html#a41787558 or else we mix things up.

On the topic of this thread, I think the following was a good explanation:
