PHP PHP Arrays and Control Structures PHP Loops Continuing Your Journey

Anyone else completely suck trying the additional challenges for ToDo?

Just started learning PHP and working my way through the beginners PHP track here on Treehouse.

However, I am now seriously considering giving up.

I really thought that I was just about getting by, I have been completing all the quizzes and objectives on each section. Until I came to try to do the additional tasks on the ToDo.php. I seriously don't even know where to begin with the challenge. Is it just me, am I that dumb, have I missed something or is anyone else having issues?

I don't see the point in continuing this course if I am so stuck at this stage, It's only going to get worse!

My current job requires me to learn PHP and really don't know what to do right now.

Thanks in advance for any advice or input.

A bit of struggle is common when you're learning something new, and programming introduces many new concepts if you've never done any before.

You might enjoy this episode of the Treehouse Show that discusses learning issues and solutions (including a few suggestions by me!). And if you have access to the bonus material, there's a series of videos called Learn how to Learn you might find useful.

Happy coding!
