I've done such a lot of Sass over the last couple of months and for a little while I thought it was going to beat me! Sure I was finishing the code challenges (with a little bit of help here and there) and getting the quizzes right but I never really felt like I truly got it!
I've done Sass Basics, Compass, Modular CSS, Advanced Sass so by that time I thought I'd done it all.
Now I might just be speaking too soon because I'm not even half way through the latest course but I feel like today I made something of a break through. Things were starting to click today in making Sass and the command like working together. Finally I've worked out just what a partial is, why it's necessary to create so many files to break down the CSS code, how @imports work together to output CSS; using placeholders to extend selectors. Almost like a Eureka moment.
Personally if you're starting out with Sass I would recommend following (in order)
Sass Basics CSS to Sass Modular CSS with Sass Advanced Sass Compass.
Almost like a little track in itself. Hopefully it won't be too long before we have enough courses to make a track of Sass courses. :-)

Thanks for sharing! I took the Sass Basics class when I did the Web Design track & just felt like I didn't get it at all, even though I could see how incredibly useful it could be for dealing with CSS code redundancies. It's frustrating seeing the Why so clearly but not understanding the How. Knowing that the follow-up courses can clear up that confusion is great!
