Can't seem to get it right and looking to see the answer to see how I messed it up.

Can someone post the answer?

script.js
var secret

do {
  secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
  if (secret === "sesame") {
    document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");
  }
}
while ( secret !== "sesame" ) {
  secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");   
}

You're so close!

Treehouse's hint is:

Bummer: You only need to call the prompt() method once, and only inside the loop.

As pointed out we will just keep doing the do loop while the condition is not met. Which means you don't need the second secret = prompt("What is the secret password?"); as it will already run when not met.
