Yet another jQuery Utility Methods exercise person stuck

Challenge task 1 of 2: "Call 'map' on the inputs with the class 'required' and return each of their values and store it in a variable named 'values'."

I've gone through the top 5 or 6 forum posts regarding this question and sorted through all types of disgruntled posts. As bad as it feels I've resorted to cutting and pasting all the codes suggested just to get through and I still can't get past challenge task 1 of 2! I'm starting to think there is something wrong with my browser.

This is the latest so called working code I tried:

var $required = $(".required");
var values = $required.map(function(){ 
   return $(this).val();

hmmm interesting

So I took a break, came back the next day and copy and pasted the code I just showed you guys and the darn thing worked.

One thing I noticed before inputting any code is that yesterday there was the .inArray string on the preview pane on the right. This time I had the 3 input fields instead.
