Too fast...

Instructor going way too fast, and not explaining well - as if we should already be Git Pro's... Disappointing course!

Try to use other resources while watching the video. I personally find this course (and the Console Foundation one) to be the best explained ones here on Treehouse... until now, of course :).

I do agree that some concepts are not very well explained, that's why try reading extra. It will pay off.

I AGREE! The instructor quickly switches from one branch to another and sometimes his command folder confuses me because it doesn't list out the whole folder that he is in. I literally have to keep rewinding the video to know what folder switch he made. Disappointing course.

Remember the speed control on the video player.

You can change the playback speed using the control to the left of the "CC" (caption) control on the player.

I run the majority of lessons at 75% speed and its still way too fast for me. I think they do forget sometimes that we're trying to follow along.

Remember you also have a "rewind" button, and can pause at any time.

Agreed, it's too fast of a pace. I understand you can pause, rewind, and playback, or even play at a slower speed, but even playing at a slower speed, the video is not smooth at all and not fun to follow.

PS. I've rewinded and played again several times. Spent over an hour on this one video LOL
