Jump to navigation. Why do most people who make an effort to learn to code fail? The answer is in the question: Think about learning languages. Are you more likely to succeed if you decided to learn French just because you always wanted to learn another language or because you are moving to France for three months for work? Real projects … real "doing" approaches are how people learn. That's what you should be looking for in a book.
The most important part: Cognitive research shows that retention increases percent when learners are challenged to retrieve the information they just read. You ll spend two to three times as long practicing as reading.
When you code incorrectly, you ll get as many do-overs as you need, until you know it cold. Testing showed that books and courses load up the reader with far too much information at a time.

So I divide up the information into little chunks that won t overwhelm you. A book on coding doesn t have to be written in impenetrable legalese. It can actually be human-readable. My book is. People often learn best through examples, so I provide plenty of them.
Most important, before you have a chance to forget what you ve read in the book, I ask you to fire up your desktop or laptop not your mobile device and head over to my website, where you run a set of interactive exercises, practicing everything you ve learned-until you re sure you ve mastered it. Readers tell me they often start the exercises thinking they ve learned the latest lesson, and quickly find out they re still a little shaky on it.

Readers tell me they often start the exercises thinking they know the material cold. The automated exercise manager keeps you at it until your overconfidence becomes real confidence-confidence that's based on your excellent performance. There are 1, exercises in all.
They're all interactive, with an automated answer-checker that corrects your missteps and points you in the right direction when you stumble.
I had several problems with the exercises: All chapters used the same number and type of exercises, even when longer-form exercises would be more appropriate.
Pop-ups are used frequently and some exercises prompt the user to check their answer instead of testing it like a Codecademy course would. The user doesn't get to use a real syntax-highlighting editor like they would for a real project.
Despite my objections to the online exercises, I felt that the content of the book was useful and I feel like I learned a lot, but I'm not sure if it was worth the price over some of the better free online-only options.

This was a solid book for learning syntax, and very basic programming concepts and techniques. It was not very exciting, in that you don't actually build anything useful in the exercises. The format is to read a chapter for 10 minutes, and then do some exercises. Rinse and repeat.

The accompanying online tasks are quite tedious, but nevertheless provides good practice.
