I am so hopelessly lost. I can’t believe how impossible it is to learn this thing. I can’t get past the 3rd or 4th exercise no matter how much I try. I’ve been reading this non stop and it makes no sense. I can’t remember any of these commands or lines, how do ever keep this stuff in my memory? Should I learn something else before Java? I know HTML/CSS and some PHP. Please help…anyone
Hello @byte5723385929, could you please post your code and a link to the exercise?
Just go slowly. Take your time. revisit things if you need to. If you get really stuck, take a break, and go for a walk. It really helps.
Thank you for the reply. I don’t have the code, I gave up and started over. The link is https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-java/lessons/learn-java-variables/exercises/introduction
all i can do is follow the instructions and type exactly what it says but i don’t know what I’m doing.
I do take brakes but it doesn’t help when i come back and I remember even less than next day.
Thank you again for the recommendation. I’ll probably do the entire course all the way through. I haven’t really learned any new HTML stuff for years, hopefully the curve isn’t too sharp.
Being there… feels horrible… but know I can say its not that hard…
The best way is to practice… and practice… and practice… and read how each method work…
Go slow… if you try to rush you’ll get confuse and frustrated…
- It took about six months… just because I was not a full time student.
- I think that the subscription it’s the cheaper option, it’s about $20 monthly, much better than other options and better than Netflix.
what is it that you don’t understand???
Some thing that help me was to translate the code to spoken English, for example:
oldDrawer.push(“My new Shoes”);
so I’d say: push my new shoes into my oldDrawer.
Don’t give up, we all were frustrated at some point. Share what you can’t understand and we’ll explain it easy peasy.
I just don’t understand any of the examples. I can follow the instructions in the lessons, but I don’t know what it’s doing, it just seems like an extremely complicated way to write something so simple like you could just write it in HTML.
I’m really lost on Concatnaction? ( I don’t know how to say that word) but really none of this has made any sense.
All pages use HTML, without HTML there is no Web page.
It’d be a good idea to watch some short Youtube video about history of HTML and differences between then.
in simple english, Concatenation is joining two strings together, put it together. for example:
var myName = “Jhon”
var myAge = 25
console.log("Hello, I’m “+ myName+” and I’m “+ myAge + " years old.” )
We use the + sign for this purpose. Please watch a video on Youtube, it’s easier.
OK, i’ll try videos, I tried them before but they were more difficult than this. Maybe I can find one that is more simple.
