I can't do any of these challenges

Hi. I think I've met my match with these challenges. I'm at a total loss as to how to proceed. Andrew has thrown in quite a lot, in my view, too much information to take in.

What should I do about this?

It might be time for a break. A little time away might give you a fresh perspective.

In the meantime, you might enjoy this episode of The Treehouse Show. It features a discussion about learning challenges and overcoming them (including suggestions by me!).

Hi Steven. Thanks for sharing that with me. I've watched the video about three times and it does help.

DO what I do, it might help you get the information in. I create a scrum backlog of things through trello.com that I (as a developer) must know in order to be successful or able to produce on my own. Each card I create I work on along with the lessons and add important information in there. As I work alongside the challenges I open up these cards with information to see any examples I put in there that matches the challenge ( that is if I do not recall them right away I do this). Doing this helps to reinforce your memory because you are the one creating your own (documentation)
