Add placement exams for certain courses?

I’ve been working on the “build chatbots with python” course, and since I already have a good foundation in python, I’ve foung this course extremely tedious since it covers a huge amount of very basic python elements over the course of many pages and exercises.

At the moment I’m here:

https://www.codecademy.com/paths/build-chatbots-with-python/tracks/python-3-data-structures-and-loops/modules/learn-python3-lists/lessons/use-python-list/exercises/list-len

It would be very nice on courses like these if it were possible to jump ahead to the juicy stuff so to speak (i.e. some kind of advanced placement option). I’m getting burned out on this course just re-treading stuff I already know.

Cheers

Hey @scott_j! Thanks for the suggestion, this is a good one. I’ll pass this along to the Product and Curriculum team so that they can consider implementing something like this in the future. I’ll keep you updated here :slight_smile:

Hi,

I’m struggling with the same problem in the Data Scientist career path, as I am quite fluent in Python, but want to brush up on Pandas, statistics and Git.

I think it could be a good idea to give us the option to directly complete the “review” exercise at the end of each lesson module in order to skip that module. I think this shouldn’t be too hard to implement, as you do not need to make any new content for it, just allow for the review exercise to be completed without having to go through all the lessons of the module.

Cheers
