Its been three months of learning Python, spending hours at a time on the Codecademy’s site and I seem to be still lost as to how to best answer these coding challenges without having to click the solution button.
Moreover, is it my imagination or does it seem as though each challenge question may have parts of things that were previously taught, but the series of steps to solve each new problem vary to the point where every new method requires a different set of steps to solve. And I still don’t feel confident to answer any Python related questions in a forum setting.
It feels like I’m supposed to connect the dots but the dots aren’t on the page. It’s a little discouraging because I’m starting to feel incompetent. I know what for loops are, what is a while loop, and I understand most of the syntax when it is explained in the hints section or after I see it in the solution, but perhaps I’m missing some sort of creative element in figuring out how to solve these challenge questions.
I would like to know how others are able to solve these challenge questions or is everyone else racking their brain and revisiting past assignments in the hopes that something will jump out and make sense.
As a side note: Can anyone tell me if once we complete the codecademy course, are we in a position to begin seeking employment, or is this only a hobby level of skills.
Any response welcomed and thanks.
