Preparing for a Coding Bootcamp

I’m looking to apply to a coding boot-camp towards the end of 2021, and I would like to start preparing now. My first choice would be App Academy, and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for Codecademy courses to assist. I’m looking to apply to App Academy’s 24 week program which focuses mainly on JavaScript and Python. I started the JavaScript course on Codecademy already but was wondering if there are any other courses I should focus on. I was also wondering the recommended time I should spend each day to prepare for a coding boot-camp. As I said before, I plan to start applying later next year, maybe around October or November. Thanks for any suggestions! :smiley:

I went to App Academy’s website and found this in their “prepare section”:

Module 1: Intro Web Development and JavaScript Fundamentals

Primitive Data Types
Functions
Looping

Module 2: Intro JavaScript + Bootcamp Practice Problems

Multi - Dimensional Arrays
Nested Loops

Scope
This

Module 3: Intermediate JavaScript + Practice Problems

Data Modeling
Callbacks
Higher - Order Functions
Asynchronous Programming
Closures

Module 4: Advanced JavaScript + Interview Techniques

Prototype Modification
Introduction to HTML

Based on all of this, I think this Codecademy courses could be helpful:

And if you want to expand and cover more ground, you could also learn:

I hope that gives you at least a starting point! It will probably be helpful if you can find App Academy Alumni that can give you more insight into the learning process, the application, etc
