You can view all the different "tracks" here http://teamtreehouse.com/tracks (the second link down on the left hand menu in Treehouse). Many of them start with a small project so you can make something right away and then go into far more detail with the later videos. Don't worry if you don't understand everything in the first section!


but so i take the project first then deep dives on the track also do have tips how to remember all the info

Here's my basic process:

  1. Watch the videos
  2. Take notes on the important concepts as well as syntax using workflowy
  3. Refer back to your notes about syntax when doing the code challenges
  4. At the end of each badge build a little something for practice using the concepts you've just learned on codepen for CSS stuff or runnable for Ruby stuff.

The real trick is to remember what's possible and how to reference it. So when I can't remember the exact syntax of a CSS property, I consult a CSS quick reference which I keep in my bookmark bar for handy reference. And for Ruby syntax this is a handy reference
