I guess it depends on what you want to learn and where you're at with your tech knowledge at the moment. For complete beginners the 'Digital Literacy' course might be good. And then I think if you are interested in Web Development start with the 'Web Design' track before proceeding to the 'Front End Dev' Track, If you're into app development instead, look at those courses.

Thanks lauranibel, and what's the best time to switch from Web Design to Frond End Track?

I'd completely finish the web design course first and then start on the front end dev course. There's also some overlap between both courses, so when you've completed the web design course you will already have completed several stages of the web dev course (mainly the CSS & HTML sections) too. It might also be useful to complete a few practice projects after you've learned some HTML & CSS, maybe dive deeper into these topics before proceeding to topics such as JavaScript.

Well, that's just my opinion and other people her might see it differently. There is no right or wrong I guess.

I'll try like that. I finished all but Design Principles in Web Design track. It wasn't interesting for me. So I switched to Front End, and done all till Ajax, there I lost :D

Yeah, I guess that's the beauty of online training providers such as Treehouse: you can put together your own curriculum and don't need to necessarily follow a predetermined path. If you're not keen on a particular topic, just skip it. I did some of the Front End Dev course, but didn't want to dive into JavaScript just yet and currently prefer to intensify my CSS skills!
