Challenge Guide for Exercise Tracker

I’d like to suggest some content for this Challenge Guide.

As noted in another post I made, I believe it would be a great help to learners to simply explain how they can read the source of tests and see more detailed output from them by using the following resources:

  1. Viewing Glitch logs/console while running the tests.
  2. Walking through the test source code in Github.
  3. Using something like Postman to be able to write similar tests and make assertions. Being able to run the actual tests locally would of course be better.

I still think the whole certification needs a lot of work, and you shouldn’t have to know how to do testing to this degree prior to completing the testing certification, but this will at least help people get through the current projects without the level of frustration I and many others seem to have experienced.

would you like to suggest the wording of the guide?

Sure, but I’m not able to edit it.

if you want to contribute to the guild, it’s how you have done - a topic in #contributors with the suggested text (this topic even as you already have it)

OK, I’ll write something up and post it on this thread.

Just to post the content: I walked through one of the more troublesome tests here:
