A few questions AND feedback!
hope someone can help me:
1) shouldn't it be in this order: final public static int MAX_PEZ = 12; similar to: final private String characterName;
2) What is an INSTANCE Variable? What is an INSTANCE? Is it the Object, in this case, the dispenser?
3) What is %d?
The Java Basics course was a breeze, but now I'm finding it difficult to grasp the material. There are so many terms used in the one video that it makes it difficult for me to keep up with what the instructor is saying. Getting really discouraged at this point! Is it just me? Should I keep going?
An access modifier i.e. "public" or "private" will typically be first.
public static final int MAX_UNITS = 25;
I would go back and review then keep going, or go to another resource and then come back and keep going...or both. But don't give up. Persistence pays off and some ideas just take a bit longer to solidify.

For #3, the %d is just like the %s, where s is for string but d is for whole numbers like int. %f is also used for floats (i.e. doubles)
