JavaScript JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects Simplify Repetitive Tasks with Loops A Closer Look At Loop Conditions

I'm having trouble grasping Javascript functions, loops, arrays and objects. Where can I get some additional practice?

No matter how many times I replay the video, I just don't seem to be able to put together a Javascript function or loop condition once I get past the bacics (inserting missing code into a premade code).

Is there anywhere that I can get some additional practice? I'd really like to master JS.

There are a lot of great resources out there for diving deeper into JavaScript! Treehouse and Codecademy are great but it does help to look elsewhere to get a better understanding of what you're learning. I tend to not like to rely or trust in one resource only, so sometimes I will compare what I learn here to what someone says somewhere else. Sometimes too just hearing or reading how someone else describes something will make what you're learning click better.

Here's just a few resources! Hope they help. :)


http://eloquentjavascript.net/ - I've just started this one, from what I've been told it will turn you into a JavaScript Ninja.






Excellent answer :)

Oh wow! I'm so glad I asked this question, these resources are more than I could've asked for. I've heard great things about the Eloquent Javascript book so I'll definitely be reading that on my daily commute. Thanks a million!

Hey Rasheeda,

Loops, functions, objects, and arrays are still a part of the basics of JavaScript, but I constantly recommend this site to get in some very good practice with JavaScript: CodeAcademy.com. Combining that site with Treehouse helped me quite a bit when I was starting out.

Thank you! I actually began this course and completely forgot about it. I went back to it and I was able to write a successful while loop. I appreciate the help :)
