More practice

Hi everyone,

Is there a place where I can practice python basics more? I keep redoing the challenges they give me but im worried im just learning what to put down to past the test rather than learning what im really doing if that makes sense. Im currently learning about functions and exceptions. Is there a type of program I should try on my own?

Thanks for all the help!

Hey Ryan,

I felt the same way going through the basic python course. It all made sense, but I felt like I needed more practice to fully grasp the concepts. There's quite a few resources out there that give you some more practice problems and code challenges. One that I found to be pretty helpful was https://www.practicepython.org/ . There are quite a few problems on there, many of them covering the same topics as the Python Basics course here. On top of that, all of them have the solutions if you get stuck. You can also see submissions from others. Something that really helped me out was reading through other people's code and comparing it to my own.

Good luck!
