Using Queries is a fraking wall. Before this part everything was relatively clear. But this. I just do not understand what is happening and even after hitting button “solution” I can’t deconstruc and understand how to get this result and what does it do at all. Very “interesting” way to teach people stuff.

I agree. I was lost here too.

I feel like the tutorial jumped (as in skipped some steps) and assumed we already knew how express worked.

I think if someone from codecademy performed a simple audit of this tutorial, they would agree… or not. I could just be dumb when it comes to Express.

I have to agree. The introduction of the new methods required (that become apparent when the solution is loaded) is missing in the lesson. The hints are not a lot of help and could perhaps be linked to an external resource.

The instructions are not clear in these lessons. The variables that are recommended and the logic that I am asked to perform are not clear or corollary. I feel frustrated that I have have the solution revealed just to understand what the instructions were directing me to do. There is some helpful information in here, but the Instructions need some more tweaking.

My doubt here is I don’t find a way to make a request using any other verb different from get. I cannot find the ‘UPDATE’ tab. Can you tell me how can I activate / get it? Thanks.
