CSS

I have HTML down, but applying CSS is my problem area. Should I take CSS Basics or another course?

I've come to the conclusion that I know everything I need to know about html, but when I get to the styling part in css, I am at a lost (as I sit staring at my main.css tab clueless). Any suggestions?

I would say if you have finished the how to make a website course I Highly recommend going and studying the CSS basics courses. just start with the basics and work your way up. The great/horrible thing about the tech industry is there is always something to learn about everything. If you wanted to you can learn more HTML, if your thinking about being a ruby dev you might want to think about learning Haml, a preprocessor for HTML, can be handy and efficient. In short take your time, start with the basics, and create cool stuff. Stuff that you want to create, and learn as you go. I hope this helps, but if you have any questions remember the forum is a great place to ask for help.
