Do you have an example of an exercise which was “too difficult”? Also, have you tried going back to re-watch the lessons?
It is a little hard to be helpful here without more details on what the problem is. Are you saying that the exercises require more information than what Mosh had explained in the lessons? If so, it would be more helpful if you point out where he expects you to know something before he teaches that thing. Otherwise, I think the expectation is that you can go back and rewatch the lessons if you did not pick it up on the first pass. It is pretty common when learning something to need to hear it a few times before it sticks. Or if you are having trouble with a particular exercise, you can ask for help with that particular exercise.
Hi there folks,
What I discovered is a good understanding of HTML5 and CSS before making that leap into JS is way better. So, for me, things got better after I circled back and got HTML5 with CSS certificate.
I agree with this advice.
In addition, if you are having trouble with specific topics, such as loops, try creating simple loops on your own. Create a list, a list of objects, try just simply logging them in console. Maybe add some if or else conditions in the loop, see how it behaves. Then if you can understand how a loop works at a basic level, try to implement a part or all of the requirements provided for the exercise. If you have to take it at a snails pace, then by all means do so. Once you understand the basics at a fundamental level, the rest is just figuring how to chain the fundamentals together.
