Updated course has me taking CSS basics even though I've completed CSS Foundations, is there any way to reverse this?

I'm currently on the Front End Web Development track and I agreed to a track update. I've already completed CSS Foundations, which has now been replaced for a (simpler)CSS basics course. Unfortunately, I can't continue my progress which is further on in the track until I complete CSS Basics. Is there any possible way to avoid having to sit through CSS basics just so that I can resume my track?

I had much the same issue, although I had only mostly completed the 'Foundations' course when the track was updated. It's fairly simple to just take the quizzes and do the code challenges on the 'Basics' course sans watching the videos (unless you really need to in order to review something). With the knowledge you've already gained from Foundations, it should be pretty easy to fly through 'Basics' pretty quickly. This may not be an ideal answer but hopefully it helps a bit.

I just had the same thing happen on my php track. After all the time I already spent on CSS Foundations and being so close to finishing this track..at this moment I am frustrated. This is the second update Ive encountered on this track where it feels like taking 2 steps and sliding back 5. Why isnt there some heads up of what the change will entail and a more intuitive option to bypass the update for folks well into their current track?
