So far I have made it through all the basic algorithm challenges, but I’m feeling so so about them after finishing.
Partly due to having to lean on the chat a few times for some guidance and help. That being said, I decided instead of moving forward I should redo the challenges again to ensure I understand what I need to do.
A couple of the challenges still proved difficult even on the 2nd time around…sigh. I’m currently stuck on Chunky Monkey again because I had a substantial amount of help with that one on the chat. Now doing it on my own is making it rather difficult haha.
Either way my question is this, should I be going the route that I am currently going? Doing the exercises over and over to I really have a grasp and then move forward, or should I just push through, get the challenges complete and move forward?
Part of me thinks that I should just push on because I’ll discover new methods or new ways of getting stuff done, but in the same vein if I cannot complete the basic tasks will the new methods I learn even matter since coding seems to be a compounding skill set?
I’m hoping to get a little feedback on this, and maybe what others found to be the most successful way of learning.
