Studying Techniques

hey everyone i have a question. i have been going through the freecodecamp javascript course and i reached the ‘counting cards’ page i had alot of issues understanding what i should do especially the last part " The function will then return a string with the current count and the string Bet if the count is positive, or Hold if the count is zero or negative. The current count and the player’s decision (Bet or Hold ) should be separated by a single space."
So basically what i want to ask is, do you just go through each freecodecamp lesson one after the other or do you take the time to do reasearch on each topic before you move on to the next task?
hope this makes sense.

I worked my way through the Javascript course and, whenever I came up against something I didn’t quite understand, I paused and researched. Sometimes it was just to check the documentation on a particular method or to understand better how a switch case works and sometimes it was to try to understand a more abstract concept like recursion or callback functions.

You can’t be expected to fully understand everything you’re taught but I think it definitely helps to dig a little deeper as you go, so that you at least understand the general concepts, purpose and potential applications of what you’re learning.


Thanks! Yeah i went back looked at some solutions and have a little bit better of an understanding. I felt kinda stupid when i couldnt get the solution on my own but maybe i shouldnt be so hard on myself.
I will come back to this problem periodically when i get more practice in.
