Struggeling with JS and curriculum alternative

Hey, Im not sure if this kind of post is allowed but here goes… ( if not please don’t ban me lol im just a newbie )

So I have been trying to work through the JS corriculum but I am fighting a lot with the logic so I have looked for alternative corriculums or courses and found udemy.
They are usually very expensive ( and I am always broke ). But at the moment they have a deal and I got a ~$100 course for $10.
If anymore feels the same as me ( struggling with the fcc js corriculum ) then now is a good chance.

Im gonna repeat, This is in no way shape or form an add and I am not connected with udemy in any way. Im just struggeling learning JS and maybe someone finds this helpfull. I love FCC with all my heart.

You’re not alone in this.

Just as an FYI for anyone else looking at Udemy courses: do not buy them at the "full price"

They get reduced every few weeks, so if you are looking at a course and it’s showing as being $100 or whatever, don’t purchase it, just add it your wishlist and wait a few weeks and you’ll get a notification that there’s a “sale” on.

There are a very small number of courses that never really drop in price, but for the vast majority the most you should be paying is around $10.

That is a very good info thank you. And thank you FCC team for the openness to discuss other ways of learning. FCC Rocks! :heart:

How did you continue your JS quest? Did you stay on the fcc course or did you venture into diffrent places to learn?

Thanks for asking, I definitely didn’t stay at the fCC course for quite a while when I noticed I was struggling…

I went to anywhere you can think about: Youtube, javascript.info, Eloquent Javascript (not good for beginners but I still learned a lot), and MDN.

Long youtube tutorials bores me personally so I only watch a particular topic on youtube, not something like JavaScript crash course…

As I’m looking for those resources I mentioned, I don’t just read and watch them - I code, at the same time.

Good to know!
I will see how far the udemy course will carry me ( it claims to go from zero to expert, but don’t they all say that :sweat_smile: )

We don’t know for sure, only you can tell! Remember, don’t stick to only one resource, make use of the internet! :grinning:
