Not picking up OOP since dunders.
I can't seem to grasp the concept in this course no matter how many times I rewatch them I just don't understand whats going on. Kenneth is a good teacher but he's not really breaking it down too well for me here. I've been having trouble keeping up since I started object-oriented Python and I've been stuck for about a week. Has anyone else had this problem with learning? Should I power through to the next Python course?

I'm working through this section while accepting that I'm not understanding everything. I'm using a lot more outside resources in this section compared to others.
Ryan Carson I would suggest breaking this course up into much smaller, slower sections with much clearer examples that build incrementally, minimizing the amount of new information presented in each video/code challenge. I sense this course would work really well for people who have a solid programming foundation.
Ryan Carson Thank you very much for taking this step. I was really frustrated while studying OOPS, luckily I got some content online to restore my confidence to continue my learning. I would be honest to admit the fact that I didn't return to the treehouse for two weeks after the OOPS course.
Joshua Lewis: you can consider going through Telusco python OOPS video on youtube, it will give you very basic understanding with some amazing examples, and once you are done with his video you can switch to Corey Schafer youtube video for python OOPS Tutorial. It will certainly help you to understand the OOPS Concept with "relevant" examples.
