Do I have to code along in the video, or no?

I'm just confused :l

Personally, I prefer to do it with as the video plays because it helps make sure that I know what I'm coding. Plus, if I have to, I can simply pause at the end and work from there. Just personal preference.

It also helps to have either a large monitor or dual monitor set-up so that both are easy to read and scan for errors.

You can just watch the videos if that works for you. But depending on your learning style, the "code along" might help things stick in your memory better.

Well, It's mostly review for me I just got here I've been on tons of other coding sites so most of this is review so I have most of it in my memory.

Try just watching then. If you find it easy to complete the quizzes and challenges, then you probably do already have a good handle on the material.
