Can I please get some advice?

I want to learn Python. I enjoyed "Python Basics" and "Python Collections" classes, but Stuck in "Object-Oriented Python" class. Within this course, "Instant Objects" and "Inheritance" are ok, but "Advanced Objects" is difficult!

I want to keep learning. Can I please get some advice?

Thank you all for your suggestions and comments! Very grateful!

One idea would be to set that course aside and take another one, such as Write Better Python, and then re-try the one you were having trouble with.

Thank you Steven!

Another idea would be to google the topic you are struggling with and read a few other tutorials, blog posts, etc on the same subject. Sometimes just seeing/hearing the same thing explained a slightly different way or in a slightly different voice can make the concept 'click'.

Also, be realistic with yourself. Object-orientation is hard and most of us get confused or struggle with parts of it.

Thank you Alex!

Maybe find someone who can mentor you in terms of the course who can help you along the way. I also struggled a lot in that area as well but I had a lot of help and that really helped me get through it. If you need any help feel free to ask me.

Thank you Christabelle!
