  do {    
    secret = prompt("What is the secret password?"); 
    correctSecret = true; 
} while ( ! correctSecret ) 
  secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");

One of the advantages of converting the type of loop is that you will only need to use "prompt" just once, inside the loop. Remember the declare the "secret" variable before the loop starts (but no need to assign it there).
