I’m currently on the Galvanize prep course, and I’m bumping into a lot of problems that I never can answer but thankfully they provide a video with the answer. The problem is, I’m not learning by just watching the video. Is there anything I can do to actually learn the content and not just say “Ah, I could have done that”. Should I ‘dissect’ the problem and analyze every part? Tear it down and rebuild it? What do you do?
What you should do depends on how you learn, however practising definitely helps to reinforce your understanding.
There are many sites where to practise solving problems. One that I personally use and find helpful is Edabit . Others might suggest different and better sites. Just pick one and try it out, you have nothing to lose .
