1) The cognitive approach that Mark Myers uses is for the reader to spend 5 - 10 minutes covering the key elements.
2) Then the reader practice's by answering 20 questions that cover the key elements.
3) The questions are styled in away that causes the student to retrieve the "key elements" using five different ways of typing their answers:
--non-timed big box entry
--small box: single key stroke entry
--timed big box entry
--lab style questions
The student is forced to use multiple visual learning modalities.
This approach causes the user to start creating NEW neural pathways in their brain which is "A smarter Way to Learn"
I just finished the 10th chapter and I am noticing that I am remembering more!!!
Each chapter has its own practice link. You type in the answers and if you get an incorrect answer, it will go back to it once you have completed the other questions. It will do this until you get it right..I was able to complete 3 chapters and practices last nite and then I walked away..which the author recommends.
Today, I started again and I was able to complete three more..having the ability to actually do the steps myself made me realize that it doesn't have to be complicated and there isn't just one way to learn coding, but I found the best way for me. There are programs and books out there that just throw you into coding without showing you the basics first and it can make it more difficult than it has to be.
If you are a newbie and you are ready to do what it takes to learn coding (it takes a serious commitment), I would recommend this series to help get you off to a great start!
To your success!
Just a note, although I firmly give this a very enthusiastic 5 stars, there are a few typos here and there in the book. I have read other self-published books, so that doesn't phase me, I knew what was being communicated or if there was some punctuation or the like left out of a coding example in the book, it was already so impressed on my brain the correct way to do it, sometimes I didn't even notice those tiny errors myself until I was copying the examples into my notes! (which really helps my memory)
Final note, all Mark's books in particular are so incredibly inexpensive for the Kindle e-reader version that's why it was so easy to make the first purchase that I did. I downloaded the Kindle for PC app and then could work on either my desktop at home or laptop when traveling, so made it quite easy to continue studying even when I'm here, there and everywhere during my week. Another note: Mark has made it so you can only go to online exercises link from the e-book from PC, not Kindle Fires, phones or tablets, which makes sense because it would be incredibly difficult to code from any of those devices, in my opinion.
Main point: if you want a way to teach yourself coding, I think this just might be the best way to do it, most bang for your buck!
