Make sure you don't procrastinate on lessons. Doing a little bit or more each day will keep things fresh in your mind! You also may want to see what the projects for each section in Python want you to do and start testing and trying to build it along with what you learn in each lesson. Don't be afraid to reach out to classmates and mentors! Also, GOOGLE things! I found a lot of information to help me through forums I found there.

Going on great till now. Its explained in very simple and doable way. Earlier I was thinking that Programming is very tough (might still be ☺), but the beginning of this program is excellent as of now.

Great Program

Vinay B.

The overall course was very good and gave good understanding of basic concepts. The instruction videos were short and to the point. Regular exercise helped in putting concepts learnt in the videos to practice. As for projects, I had lots of fun working on them especially (python and JavaScript). The requirements of the projects are what makes them challenging not just to get the project up and running. Things to improve, I would put more emphasis on "Classes" section of Python and DOM in JavaScript. These sections, I felt were a bit lacking in dept. Another area of improvement(outside the course content ) would be to send physical Certificate upon successful completion of nano degrees. I was very disappointed when Udacity just gave downloadable soft copy after a grueling 3 months of hard work. It would have been a nice gesture from Udacity, if students received their certificate on a nice Glossy paper rewarding all the hard work.
