Does anyone else can relate to that? Does anyone have an opinion to help me? Maybe an advice?
While I do pick up things from reading books, I do know what you mean.
I think the key is not just to read the book but hand type each example. This makes me think about how composers will sometimes study a work by copying it by hand, forcing them to notice every single note.
So, type out every example, don’t just cut and paste or download. And don’t move on until you understand every line. Change it, break it, make sure you understand it. Make each line your bitch.
If you aren’t learning anything from YDKJS, then you are either a JS master or it is just going in one eye and out the other. There is so much information in those books. Take some time. Maybe start with some easier books.
But don’t skip anything! All too often, we skip over things that we “kinda-sorta understand”. Don’t be in a hurry. We’re going for depth of understanding here, not to see how fast you can get through the book. You’ll learn more from deeply understanding on book than you will from skimming 10.
Yeah, I’m always trying my best to understand everything and as I said, I’m not a complete beginner but whenever I’m reading I always go back because I feel I’m not learning enough, I think I’ve tried to read the first chapter like 5 different times.
Maybe it’s just a feeling… when I first started with PHP I had a lot of troubles with MVC, I thought I couldn’t understand but one day I tried it out and everything worked out.
I think I’m just frustrated because I’ve been trying to read this book since last year and I couldn’t finish more than 3 chapters.
There are many threads about books to read:
I’ll definitely check those threads out! Thanks!
