To best understand the material, you need to USE the material. Write some small programs, such as writing sentances on the screen. Then, do some simple math, adding 2 + 2 together. Then, work in input statements "input a: input b:" and add those together. Then, work on a loop to make the program repeat and repeat until youtell it to stop.

Then get into files, and reading in information.

Programming is not a spectator sport; you need to put code into the machine, and get it to do something. Do not be afraid of the errors you will make.... this is how we learn.

Write some code. Now. Enter it here. We can go from there.



Thank you ....I will keep practicing.

I was getting so fustrated with myself because I seem to be making nothing but errors. I blame myself for not understanding the text. I guess the old saying "practice makes perfect" still holds true!
