Is it the same thing aren't: if(student.name === search){

} if(search ===student.name){

} MY mind is like if I say 5=8 and 8=5 so it should be the same thing with if?

They are the same thing. However, for things like this, just try it and use a console.log inside the if statement to see if it runs. If it does work, you learn something new.

Personally, I learned most of my Javascript just experimenting. On treehouse some valid code may not pass challenges since they want you to learn their way.
