It’s been around a month or more, spending time in learning Python, but let me confess, the method/style of Codeacademy’s teaching isn’t working for me. At least, I feel there’s a better way out there.
Let me tell you why?
First, nothing installed on the PC/Computer. Why? Pls, allow us to learn by installing things and trying on our own. Why don’t they teach us that?
Second, we do some exercises, and learn some concepts and move on to the next chapter. If I have to refer back to some of those concepts, how do I do it? E.g. I’m doing some Python exercises, which requires me to go back to old chapters and relook/revise. How do I go back? Every time, I do google and spend time on finding the right reference to that concept. It’s a waste of time.
Why can’t Codeacademy has its own Python reference and ready to refer library of important concept?
Third, I’m doing it on my pace, quite slow. And I lost track quite often and it makes it very difficult. I feel lost doing new exercises. This style of teaching might be good for those, who does it daily, but not for those who are infrequent.
Honestly, I’m trying hard, but I feel it’s not working for me.
It’s weird but I feel learning from the book seems better.
