I used 'secondName' instead of 'lastName' in the last line of coding. and I used space " " in the first variable value.

This may be the case but i would highly advice not to add spaces in variables unless justified. Glad you ended up figuring it out though :)

You've added a space to your first name instead of adding a space inside fullName variable. Also you are using the variable secondName instead of lastName. The Solution should look something like this..

Solution:

// Shayne Laufenberg //
// Javascript Basics - Combining Strings //

// Declare first name //
var firstName = "Shayne";

// Declare Last Name //
var lastName = "Laufenberg";

// Declare Full Name //
var fullName = firstName + " " + lastName;
