Drawing with jQuery.

I just got the Creating a Simple Drawing Application badge. But should I be concerned that most of what I achieved has gone over my head?

Sometimes the video went too fast for me so I stopped trying to follow. Is it worth a few more hours study or should I just move on?

Depends on how much you understand of it. If you think, that given time and google, you would be able to do something similar on your own, you should be good to move ahead. It proves you got the basic concept, and know what you have to research in order to solve the problem. If you think like you wouldn't be able to tackle the problem, even with google, and looking at jquery's API, maybe you should study a little bit more.

I think as you suggest I do have the basics learned, researching the documentation; basic jQuery syntax etc.

It was just that last video when I thought "woah, slow down this is a bit too fast"

So I'll definitely go back on the video for sure. It's going to be about practice as well. I just wanted a bit of encouragement, I suppose that I'm not the only one to get like that sometimes, that I will eventually get my head around it.
