Hello Noga,

these challenges are fine to test our comprehension of the topic. But I would like to suggest something else:

Build a simple versions of already existing things, like :

Facebook News Feed Simple version of Reddit/Twitter

they are all basically "to do lists" - just presenting different kind of data :) Start by modifying existing code from the exercises and then building it from scratch! No need to remember or memorize, by repeating and doing similar task you will get a better grasp of it.

Good luck!

There's also https://www.freecodecamp.com/ which is a free site. It doesn't offer videos, and it doesn't offer many of the other topics covered on Treehouse. What it does offer though, is a free way to challenge your coding skills and some projects that you need to complete yourself. It'll give you a guideline on what the project is supposed to do, but in the end, it's you who decides how it looks and feels. It might be worth trying out... and it's free!

thank you both very much!

Hi Noga,

One of my favourite places to practice all front end skills is [codepen](http://codepen.io/] it has an abundance of libraries pre installed that you can simply activate and get practising.

If you want help getting used to it all I would be more than happy to help as I have professor mode on it and you can watch my screen to see how I include jQuery, angular and much more :)

thanks I love codepen, and I`ll be glad to lurn more about it!:)

so... hmm how do I exactly practicing coding there exapt "create new pen" that I already know.... Do they have practice challenges or somthing like this...?

Hi Noga,

There is challenges set by other users which you can find and follow but you can also get great practice by trying to recreate things you have seen on the web that you like.

For example I often search dribbble for website layouts, find one that is just an example and not some ones site and have a a go at making it.

This one for example, I found on dribble and make it real :).

Hope this helps Craig
