Hi Eric. I would say it depends. If you want a quick intro to Javascript or programming in general then Javascript Basics is good. If you want to be a full stack developer then Full Stack Javascript is a good start. In reality it doesn't really matter because I believe Full Stack Javascript contains all or at least most of Javascript Basics courses. If you start with basics and move on to Full Stack you can skip the basic courses in the Full Stack track. If you start with Full Stack and decide its not for you well you already took most of the basics courses. Good luck and happy coding Eric!
