I finished the pset from Week 1 however I am still unable to finish the credit problem. Should I move on to Arrays and come back at a later time or wait until I am able to solve it?
This is a good question. There is merit to moving on and to finishing everything before moving on.
These classes are designed to build on everything that comes before. Moving on before mastering a concept can make learning and applying new concepts more difficult because you're fighting with multiple concepts at the same time.
However, banging your head against the wall on one particular concept isn't really productive. If you're really stuck on something, my best advice is to just walk away from it all for a day or two. Don't even think about it. After a day or two, your brain will have had time to subconsciously process everything. When you come back to whatever you're fighting with, you'll often see it more clearly and can see why you were fighting with it.
So, if you must, move on. But don't go too far before coming back and mastering the earlier material.
Happy programming! ;-)
credit is a hard one especially if you are not familiar with arrays...i still don`t understand how people do it without arrays...so yeah move on to next week if you finished the comfortable pbset.
it took me weeks to get it right ... had to come back to it multiple times ..but you ll get there in the end...
