Assumed Knowledge for iOS Track

Hey all! I've started the Learn iOS Track (currently on Build a Simple iPhone App) and I notice that Amit is using phrases like "By now you should know". I also feel a little overwhelmed by all the new terms such as methods and classes.

I've completed the programming basics and have a reasonable understanding of other languages such as HTML and PHP. Is there something I've missed here or does the iOS Track just have a steep learning curve? Are there any resources I should try to tackle first?

Thanks!

Hopefully, I don't say "you should know" in too many places. We were hoping that students could take the Objective-C Basics course prior to taking the "How to Build a Simple iPhone app". However, that course is still in production and should be released by November 21st. You can either wait for it or read up on Objective-C in our Blog written by Ben Jakuben.

Thanks Amit! The basics course sounds like exactly what I'm after, I'll wait a few days :)
