You are juggling several new things at once, programming concepts, language syntax, language keywords, etc. It might seem a bit much to retain. Some things that might help:

  1. Practice. Make little programs to put your new knowledge to use. Just some simple fun things.
  2. Review. Go back and re-watch the video on any topic area you need reinforcement on.
  3. Repeat. (Do 1 and 2 over again).
  4. Continue. Take the next-level course. It will cause you to recall what you know as you learn more.

As Steven says, write your own programs. They don't have to be complicated (I wrote a program to calculate the sum of numbers between 1 and n for example (by using something called the Gauss formula, which is worth investigating), but writing your own code will help consolidate learning.

If you can, print out programs as well. Highlight bits and pieces of the code and you can see how things work.
