I recommend you to take that course first. It gives you a better understanding of the topic, hence they mention all the topics in this course.

I decided since I ultimately want to be a fullstack JavaScript Developer I am taking the beginning javascript class and then I'll finish the other two so that I have a stronger knowledge. plus most of the classes in basic javascript will be covered in FEWD and fullstack anyways.

That's ultimately up to you. Do you feel like you understand the material? In that case, move on.

If it's confusing, take a step back.

Its advisable you take the Basics if you haven't any prior knowledge. Even if you understand now, subsequently you may get confused when you start getting into more detail of programming.
