Javascript Foundations > Arrays > Methods: Part 1

At 6:42 into the video a note appears and mentions the following:

"myArray.shift() - Removes and returns the last value in the array"

This confused me, is this accurate? It seems like it should be the "first value" not "last value". Am I missing something?

Compare pop to shift and unshift. Each manipulates the array in a different way.
