I’m up to the “Seek and Destroy” challenge on the site. I seem to be finding each challenge increasingly more difficult and feel like I’m forgetting stuff that I learned earlier on. Basically, I’m finding it difficult to make sense of a lot of things that I previously ‘understood’.
Is this normal? If anyone else had a similar experience could you tell me what helped push through and take your learning to the next level.
doing the algorithms i felt the same way a few times.
sometimes it just takes a while for you to find the solution, i remember that sometimes it took me hours to actually find the solution to the problem.
more at the end of the challenges i found out that better understanding the MDN documents was the best way to solve those problems.
and remember to Read-search-ask rule.
here in the forum there some tips on how to solve them .
Cheers for the response, that was helpful.
I think I’ve been expecting to be able to complete the tasks in less time than they take in reality. Ill be more patient and stick at it - thanks
It usually takes time to understand exactly what is required. I usually look at the tests, then re-read the instructions.
Note that Test driven development is becoming more common these days!
