Overwhelmed with this whole Promises concept

I'm sorry but this course has been a tough one to get through. Some of the things Guil talks about haven't yet been taught like the .map() iteration method, but he explains them in a way that assumes we understand what he's talking about. I know I can always refer to MDN docs for more information, but I just think it would be better not to overwhelm us with untaught concepts while trying to teach another new and fairly hard concept to grasp.

You're right, this is perhaps the most complicated concept implemented in native JavaScript. You can expect it to take a bit of practice to get fully comfortable with it.

In the meantime, you might enjoy the JavaScript Array Iteration Methods course, which covers the map() array method among others.
