don't you think this would work better in the do...while style? Re-write the code

I am unsure where the while needs to go and what it needs to test exactly.

script.js
var secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
do ( secret !== "sesame" ) {
  secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");    
} 
 } while (secret);
document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");

In a "do...while", the "while" still has the conditional expression, nothing should go between the "do" and the open brace.

Another hint: You will only need one "prompt" with this form of loop.
