JS foundation or JS basics?

Please tell me what should I do: Go ahead with this JS foundation course or switch over to JS basics course which everyone says is really good.Is there anything 'wrong' with this course.? I know c well but javascript is a dynamically typed language so i wanted to get a good hold on the basics. But at the same time I am able to follow along pretty easily. I am feeling confused what i should do next?

Personally I'd do both.

There is nothing 'wrong' with the JS foundation course and it is still part of the Front End Web Development track. So if you want to complete the track, still do it. It will probably get swapped out for the newer JS basics at some point in the future, but it hasn't yet.

So I'd suggest sticking with JS foundation to begin with as it is the one on the track and then at some point latter complete the JS basics course as a review of your basic JavaScript skills.
