index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav>
        <ul>
          <li> <a href="Portfolio"> </a>
            <li> <a href="About"> </a>
          <li> <a href="Contact"> </a>
          </nav>
    </header>
    <section></section>
    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

You might also throw in some closing tags for each list item.

It looks like your closing Unordered List tag isn't present. It needs to go right before the closing nav tag.

Also, when you click on check work and it gives you the "Oh no", just click on the 'x' in the top right corner and then click click check work again. This should prevent you from having to start over.

in the example i gave my unordered list element wasn't closed but i tried it again by closing it but i keep getting the same response which is; Don't forget to add "Portfolio" to the list.

Check my comment. That is how the syntax is supposed to look like.

Your list items are supposed to look like this:

<li><a href="portfolio.html">Portfolio</a></li>

I added the link to href; the .html is important for an anchor. Also you need to add the text that will be anchored after the opening anchor bracket.
