Hi terencelewis, Step 1: Connect your js file to html. <script src="app.js"></script> <!-- step 1 Step 2: On your app.js, print to the console. console.log("Begin program"); //step 2 Step 3: On your app.js, use alert function. alert("I am Programming!"); //step 3 Since you will be doing this often, do yourself a favor and revisit HTML classes before moving on!.

OK, I walked through and reviewed the lesson. It was helpful to see the answer compare to the question to understand what I wasn't comprehending. I confused steps in the video lesson with the challenge question request. I need more repetition to better understand. Thanks
