So true. It’s like there was a huge leap in this exercise from Arrays to Loops. Now we’re in a Brave New World.
I’ve been rolling with the things I didn’t understand until now. Now I feel like I need to sit down and examine the elements in Javascript to understand the layout.

Instructions should be rewritten. HOF are complicated but they aren’t that abstract, they are enough for any human to understand. Problem is, the instructions.

I have to agree on this. I understand that functions can be passed as parameters, that’s not the difficulty. What I struggle to understand is how this kind of callback is useful when used. I’m supposed to learn an advanced concept but I have no clue what its purpose is. If that was clarified with simple examples I think it would then just be a matter of learning the syntax properly.
