challenges

If I have to go back to watch a lesson again to refresh my memory and complete a challenge, I am having to redo all the challenges that I've already done in order to get to the one I'm on . . . (i.e., if I'm on challenge 3, I have to complete 1 and 2 again after I've gone back to quickly re-watch the lesson). Any way to rewatch the lesson then go directly back to the challenge you are on w/o having to do this . . . I guess all the repetition is good for learning, but it's getting cumbersome.

You can skip an entire code challenge but not steps of a code challenge, which are you referring to?

Say I complete challenge 1, then go to challenge 2 but I need to rewatch a bit of the lesson before writing the code. After I watch the the lesson again when I go back to complete challenge 2, I find I have to answer challenge 1 again in order to get to challenge 2. There may be a way to bypass it, but I couldn't figure out how . . .

If by "challenge 1" & "challenge 2" you mean 2 steps in a code challenge for 1 video then no, you can't skip steps.

It can be annoying when helping someone on the forum, and they are stuck on step 4 of 6 and didn't post the code of the first 3 steps they completed successfully.

No that's not what I mean. I'm referring to "challenge tasks." They are essentially small code-writing tests at the end of some sections. In the section I was referring to there were 4 "challenge tasks." They were numbered "challenge task 1 of 4," "challenge task 2 of 4," "challenge task 3 of 4" . . . you get the idea. The code-writing has nothing to do with it. It's the navigation of the site that I am asking about. Thanks for trying to understand, though.
