Really struggling with JS programming concepts in general, any other vids or sources?

Totally fine with HTML & CSS, but variables, properties, objects are going over my head, i've completed JS for beginners, AJAX, JQuery, JS & the Dom, nothings sticking, any other videos on Treehouse or resources recommend

How about JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects and Object-Oriented JavaScript?

Also note that the latter course is scheduled to be updated in a couple of months, you might get extra reinforcement if you take it now, and then also take the updated version when it is released.

I've just started that programme (OOP JS), that's when I realised nothing is going in, i feel like i'm lying to myself, i probably could go through it and answer the questions and complete the tasks, but by the end i'd still be none the wiser.. maybe its just not for me.. just can't get the concepts of it and it's really frustrating me

You might enjoy this episode of The Treehouse Show that discusses temporary learning blocks and strategies for dealing with them (including suggestions by me!).

Also, if you find you can complete the challenges and quizzes, perhaps you "get" more than you think!

Well, these topics can sometimes be challenging to beginners. My only advice is - practice, practice, practice
