skip stages in a track

Is it possible to do some kind of test to see what stage I should start at? I just started the front-end track and I already know HTML and CSS so the first stages seem a bit too basic for me. Do I have to take these or can I skip them somehow?

You don't have to follow the tracks, or do each course in order. You can pick and choose what you want to learn. You can find any course from any track (plus some that aren't in any track) in the library.

There's not really a way to skip courses but you can just do the quiz's and challenges in each section and ignore the videos. This will still allow you to get the points/badges for completing the course or track.

However, you might find it useful to go through it anyway and refresh your knowledge.

Hope this helps! :)

The point of a track is to follow a constructed guide on what to learn. The alternative is to take individual courses located in the library page. You don't need to go through the tracks, some students just like having the structure and direction that the tracks offer.
