} while ( secret === "sesame") {

This is the code we used in the last code challenge. After learning about do...while loops, don't you think this would work better in the do...while style? Re-write the code to use a do...while loop

ABOVE IS THE ASSIGNMENT.

First of all you dont need condition after do, apart from that you are pretty close just need to declare empty variable named secret and reassign it in the loop code block like this:

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