I find this course overwhelming. I prefer building something ground up.
I don't mean to disrespect the author of this course. I just don't like being introduced to several files at once. I'm forced to go back and forth when figuring out on how to build something myself. If we were to write a small portion of the project, focusing on just one aspect of it, it would have been a lot clearer. I understand this course is for intermediate audience. I'm a developer myself. Just want to communicate my opinions, and would like to know what others think.

I agree, it's a bit intense. I did the majority of the full stack js course before switching to c#. After going through the objects section and following along with each thing, I then took a step back and did Bob tabors course on msdn, which is slower and covers a lot of the basics in a much simpler/easy to understand way. Additionally he goes over a lot of built in methods (.net) that I wanted to learn(see how they differed from js). Now I've started over with the objects section and don't feel like everything is going over my head. I should probably note that I prefer doing it that way..breeze through to get an idea and then go back and stay with a section until I fully understand it, if it didn't click the first or second time.. long story not too long, you're not alone. :) glad to hear it's making more sense for you though.
Thanks for the support Niek, You are right. I have gone back to MVC basics, and I had missed out on some things. Things are lot clearer now. Going through a course once is not enough for me.

For me, I view these courses as laying foundation work anyways. The goal is to retain as much as possible, and use them in real life, where we Google, etc. But also, like you, I've re-watched older lessons before too :)
