Decision have made

Hi guys

I decided not to learn from books. I will use Treehouse as my primary learning material. So, do you think I will become a good web designer/developer if I depends on that only?

We are definitely a great place to get started! I rarely use books. Our goal at Treehouse is to teach you what you need to know. That includes two things:

  1. The basic skills you need in your specific field.
  2. Knowing how to find information when you need to learn something new, whether it's new Treehouse content, documentation, or asking questions on this Forum or sites like StackOverflow.

You may need to watch some videos multiple times to get the concepts. You may have questions about things that you can post here in the Forum. You'll definitely have to practice on your own to truly master it. But we are here to help you succeed, so get started and good luck!

As you progress with your learning, check out this excellent post by Pasan Premaratne about how to un-stick yourself when you're stuck on a problem: Help, I'm Stuck

Who needs books when you have the internet?! I did check out Jon Ducketts HTML and CSS before joining treehouse and his js and jquery book comes out this month so I'm excited about that. But you can find answers and help online to the things you need instantly
