having trouble with the JOIN syntax in this Challenge. Please help me understand.

I'd like to advance through this Challenge but am forgetting what the LEFT OUTER JOIN syntax should look like when trying to add the title.

Without seeing the actual challenge, I can just give you a general format for using a left join:

SELECT field1, field2, etc
  FROM table1
  LEFT OUTER JOIN table2 ON table1.somefield = table2.matching_field;
