The difficulty spike is very noticeable for this chapter which is quite upsetting. From Ottergram to CoffeeRun, it doesn’t feel like its even the same writer/creator. Now to be fair, they did preface that CoffeeRun will be more complex than Ottergram but it just didn’t feel as well as explained. Can someone provide a SIMPLE yet technical explanation of this chapter please?
I see you’re a few days into this module — so I can best help you, what topic(s) feels fuzziest right now?
Hi @nybblr, Thanks for the offer to clarify. I’ve since reread the chapter a couple more times and I get it now and truth be told, it is well written/explained from the get-go. Just sometimes it takes me a few iterations for things to sink in.
I agree that this chapter is a big jump. When I taught a course using this book this semester, I covered Ottergram 1 chapter per day, but I allocated 3 days to prepare for chapter 8. I should have allocated 4. I think it’s good, but it needs a bit more explanation of modules, so I can’t give a simplified summary, but a more expansive description.
I still like the book; I don’t know if my students did.
