Is it normal to get lost in understanding the concept but still able to pass the quiz?

I am starting to get lost in understanding the concept that is being taught. However following the video I was able to reproduce the same result. Looking at that result help me to pass my quiz. However, I feel like I'm not fully understanding it yet even after watching for a few more time. Is this normal as you start go higher into the upper level of the course?

Yes I've felt that way sometimes. Sometimes I'll go back over the videos and obsess about that I don't understand. But usually I just trust that if I passed the quiz, then I must at least be on the right track, and that concepts will gradually sink in over time (and possibly from other tutorials and sources).

Think of it as simply learning a new language, nobody really understands it right away, but with time it seems to make more and more sense. Being patient is the key!
