I think that the tests should provide hints and answers if you get stuck.

How do you add the CDN?

You have the right idea.

But the challenge specifically asked for the jQuery hosted at code.jquery.com. Otherwise, I'd expect the one hosted at googleapis would work.

Also be sure to load jQuery before the local app.js.

My point is not that I got the question wrong. My point is that when you are stuck and don't know what you are doing wrong, it would be helpful if the site included a hint or access to the correct answer, so that you can immediately see what you got wrong, and move forward. In any case, they let me know that you can scroll forward on the icons above the test.

Sometimes the "Bummer" message does include a useful hint. But I agree it would be much nicer if it did that in all cases.
