Re watching videos?

Hi guys! What about re watching videos? Yesterday, I completed the prereq. for the Code Louisville course, I seem to understand the concepts, of all three languages, but of course I cant remember every thing, I feel I should re watching at least the JS videos, and practice them, a few time. So, should I just continue with the next course? Or just continue practicing coding, til the next part of the Code Louisville course starts? Or a balance of both? Any opinions are great! Thanks, Scott :)

I had to look this up. For anyone else not already familiar with what this is, here's a link to Code Louisville.

It's apparently a grant-funded temporary subscription to Treehouse augmented by in-person local meetups and mentorship. It has a long waiting list with a need-based priority.

If you currently have a Treehouse subscription, and are able to complete the courses without assistance from a mentor, you already have most of the benefits of the program. You might be able to get permission to attend the meetups (which seems like all you'd be missing) without waiting for a turn in the list Try writing to their contact address.

I'm on Treehouse, thanks to getting into Code Louisville. I'm just waiting for the May sessions/ course material. As for completing the prereq. courses without a mentor, I did manage that, so I believe its just more practice, so the info sticks.
After the temporary subscription, is over I'll most likely be buying a subscription, for other coding classes. Its been really great!

If you're already in the program but have some time before getting an assignment, you might use some of the short workshops for practice (some are specifically designated as "practice" workshops). Or if you know what the assignment will be, you could get an early start.

Sounds better, practice what I’ve learned first. Thanks very much. :)
