prev() is in the title but not covered?
This course has been the worst, and the only course that is bad, on Treehouse. There are so may problems and I am going to have to buy a book on jQuery.
However, all that was done was provide a link to a method (prev()) in the teacher's notes that is a part of the main title?!
Has anyone done the jQuery Basics course? I am hoping it is a lot better than this one. I have loved every single course on this site, but I loathe this one.

You might be expecting too much from an "Introduction" course.

Hi there, Jason! Actually, the prev() method is covered, but it is grouped together with the next() method as they work in the same fashion. Here's an excerpt from the video:
The previous and next methods allow us to move side to side within the DOM. That is, they let us select the siblings of a matched element that come immediately before and after it respectively.
This happens between 0:47 and 0:56 of the video and can also be found in the transcript.
And, yes, I have done the jQuery Basics course. We all have courses we like more than others
Good luck and keep coding!
