Python Python Basics All Together Now Wrapping Up

Tough, but doable.

Not a question, but reflection. I am definitely going to do this course again to consolidate the information. The concepts are difficult and I found myself copying Craig to get through the vids.

Hey nicolaspeterson, your approach is sound.

Reviewing new material many times helps it sink in deeper. By typing in Craig’s code you literally build it into your muscle memory. Retyping and reading lots of code is key to grasping the concepts and “pythonic” way.

Under videos there are questions other students have asked. Reviewing these can help build understanding.

Finally, look at questions in the community forum. You might surprise yourself how much you know!

Good Luck!!

Back here at the end again, and this pass was much easier than the first go. Some concepts are still tricky to understand fully, but the code demos Craig does are a lot more readable (I leave the comments in for reference). Again, thanks for your help along the way.
