suggestion for treehouse
i am new to this treehouse, so far i have enjoy the course and lesson and some lesson exercises, but i also found that i spend quite a bit time to find out some of my lesson exercise correct answer, and i just wondering why treehouse not just give it out the correct answer at the end of the exercises to let the learner checking their exercise's work by themselves and rather then let the learner asking the question and find out the correct answer in the forum ?that really a bit annoying and wasting time. i hope my treehouse staff can take this as a suggestion to improve this.

So far as I've gotten all the answers are pretty blatantly answered in the videos prior to the quizzes/exercises. You shouldn't need to find the answers in the forum if you just pay attention to the video, all the exercises are taken straight from the videos.
Every question I've come across is covered in the video prior to the quiz; it may take a while for all the information to sink in but re-watching the video might be the case. I think if they gave out the answers after the quiz, passing every quiz would be easy and i don't think it promotes learning - all you have to do is remember the answer to that question and not work it out; if you can't work out the answer and have found yourself guessing a different answer two or three times, this is probably something you need to revisit to try and get a better understanding.
I think their structure and method is done a great way, the only problem I have is with the wording on some questions that has, in the past, made me click the wrong answer because the preset answers have been quite vague.

The problem most people have when they come to the forum is how they view Treehouse. They think of it like a video game trying to beat a level. Instead of thinking it like a math problem. You work on sets of math problems until you can consistently get them right.
If you don't yet know why the answer is right without asking on the forum, then you haven't yet learned the material well enough to move on to the next video.

i think my suggestion just give it out to the learner for extra option, which they want to go through for the understanding or just beat the quiz.. i think most people come here to learn and to understand the material, so for me even they give it out the answer , i will only check why my final answer,you know there might be just some capital letter or symbol problem, which is better to just check from the correct answer to save time to correct it, if there are the understanding of the material i will still go through it again for understand it clearly,when i really get stuck or confuse with the answer the next option for me will just go in the forum to ask...
