Don’t Learn Everything in a Course. Get Picky.
after joining a course, students try to learn everything the tutor teaches. don’t do that. pick what excites you and ignore the rest. when you buy a spanner set, do you actually use all the spanners?
By far the most idiotic thing a lot of students do, after joining a course, is to try and learn everything the tutor is talking about it. This could be a free online course on YouTube or something. Or some self-learning interactive tutoring site.
Or an actual classroom experience.
Every person is unique in their own way. Unfortunately, the cost of tailoring each and every learning experience to each individual is simply impossible. That is why, most coding tutors and the courses they teach will try to cram every topic under the sun.
Seriously. It’s an unfortunate situation but it is the reality of life.
What some subset of students wishes to learn, may not apply to another to another set of students. Thanks to the proliferation of endless review rating systems and constant, emotionally draining feedback systems, no tutor or company wants to focus on ‘less’.
Every time I teach this syllabus, I usually skip regular expressions section. same with ES6 or whatever ES focused chapters all. Of course, I would never see that you should not learn them at all. For my purposes, which is, to teach students the essentials of programming, it is, as of now, unneccessary.
So, you might want to consider returning to these two topics at a later time, after you have already gotten your hands dirty by building some basic programming projects.
Or, perhaps, after working at your first job for a few months.
But meanwhile, as I mentioned before, as it is the spanner set, focused on the basic few tools that get 80 % of the work done.
I work as a full-time freelance coding tutor. Hire me at UpWork or Fiverr or Stack Overflow or GitHub. see my personal website. see my photography art hobby at Behance and Unsplash and ArtStation. Also, podcast about life. podcast about movies.
