Hello to the wonderful community of Treehouse,
For example, when I got to the "Responding to User Interaction" and "Traversing the DOM" part of the course, I honestly am still very confused with all the methods and syntaxes. Everything I did was shrouded with doubt and I was unsure of what does what.
My question is, am I the only one that is having a problem with the clarity of this specific course? The quizzes and challenges also seem to be worded very... weirdly... Is there any other sources that I can go to which explains everything a bit simpler? Then I could go back and repeat this course.
All suggestions, feedback, opinions are welcomed.. :)

So my best suggestion is to just force yourself to complete this course and keep going on the track. When you've done some more courses, re-do it for better understanding. Also, don't worry about not getting everything directly. You will repeat a lot of it as long as you keep coding. Good luck and happy coding :)!

I remember having hard time with that course as I didn't know css at the time. In case your html and css knowledge needs refreshing, I believe it will make this topic a lot easier.
I totally. And quite frankly, Treehouse was my first introduction to the DOM, and it made me skip it on other tutorials from Udemy, YouTube, and freeCodeCamp. However, the DOM is not as complicated as Treehouse led me to believe. This is why it is important not to depend on one source for learning code. Try a Udemy course or YouTube.
