Hints for Code Challenges

Something that is really great about Codeschool's code challenges is that they give you the option of hints if you're stuck on a problem. If you use the hints, it takes away from the points you get for that course.

For example, I'm stuck on a specific code challenge and I'm not sure what to do. There's no easy way to advance on with the course short of just skipping the code challenge which defeats the point.

Yeah, I've definitely been stumped on a few of the quizzes and have just had to skip them. Don't necessarily give the full answer like CodeSchool does after 3+ 'hints', but at least give a couple directional hints if we don't really know where to start. Some are forsure a bit difficult to figure out where to start from, even if you understood the lessons.

Hi guys! We don't have any plans to expand on the existing Code Challenge hints at the moment. But thank you for your feedback and suggestions, we've shared them with the team and will keep them under advisement. :)

I have just went back and watched the video a few times. I learn from repetition, so I am going to back and go through everything until I have it stored in memory. :)
