I'm having trouble grasping most of what's going on, should I keep going?

Yes you should. If you are enjoying it, then that's half the battle. Go back over the areas that you don't understand. Ask the community to explain it in a different way. I sometimes feel I'm moving at a snails pace. I'll get there. Other people might be faster than you and pick things up easier, but YOU try harder. :-)

I should have clarified, I'm definitely going to keep coding but was asking wether I should go back to older lessons. The thing is I get most of the content up to a certain point (supers), after which I'm just completely lost. I guess I just need more time practicing the basics, but I don't really know how to study effectively as I've been out of education for quite some time.

Thanks for your response.

I personally buy books to go along with my online courses. Every time I don't understand what the instructor is using, I read up on it for further explanation to fully grasp the concept

Adem Gun, definitely keep going! Unless you're stuck on a topic, it may help to go to the end of the module, then revisit the material that was troublesome. Sometimes later discussions help clarify misunderstandings.

It's great that you're turning to the community for help. If you can articulate the concepts you are having trouble with please post them to the forum. Feel free to tag me in the questions with an "at" chrisfreeman3.

As a professional opinion I would say First study a bit more on the subject maybe go back and review a few things Python is a very simple Language But it can get difficult from time to time. I'm going to be honest im not going to lie and say yes you should! If you are willing to put in the effort and learn as much as you can about this language and that this is the language you wish to be your main language. then yes. I believe you should keep trying my Friend. I will also State Buying books do help. read up On Python tricks if you need to. or slow down the videos. sometimes they make more sense when you do that. have any questions feel free to tag me.
