So, I have just finished the second chapter of this book and managed to complete the bronze and silver challenges of that chapter on my own, without outside help. However, when I got to the Gold challenge it was a lot harder and I took a look at the code posted in that section of the forum to see how other’s completed the challenge.
I went through the “working” code to see how it was done and understood what was happening in the code - it made sense.
I’m now wondering - as I progress through this book I will do my best to finish all challenges on my own - but should I be worried that I couldn’t do gold challenge on my own?
I’m new to the whole programming thing - I have done some C before this and read the Objective-C book by BNR - so it’s not the language that is getting me - it’s the way the project it put together.
Should I get better with this sort of thing the more I practice it and take up as many challenges as possible ?
Any other tips?
