Extra Credits Task

Just wondering if the extra credit tasks at the bottom of each section has any sort of validation or fetches you more points? If yes, then how does one submit and validate them.

Good question, I've always wondered this! Would be good to go back and get some more points in areas

I think I've seen this mentioned before and no there's no official "testing" of them, this is just purely for your own benefit in a similar way to giving you extra learning resources to read through. Which of course makes "extra credit" a bit of a misnomer.

Yup. See link where moderator James Barnett confirms that "You just do them yourself there's no grading or answers available. If you run into issues you can always post about it here."
