If i am a beginner, should i follow the C# course before doing ""simple"" things by my own?

I mean, The C# Course teaches you """the basics""", i made a calculator and it lets you choose if you want to add, substract, etc with "do" statement and some other programs with questions using switch case etc, but, should i finish the entire course before doing anything else by my own and the course at the same time? For example, if i want to make a simple Flip a Coin program with probabilities, is it too advanced already? If not, what code lines / methods should i learn for doing it?

I'm not so into C# but I think I can help you. You don't have to complete the course, but completing it helps you to solve problems in a better way. I recommend you to learn at least half of the course(I mean learn objects and classes, at least) For the flip program you can use Random object, with it you can get a random number between 0 and 1 and it can help you in probability. (see https://www.c-sharpcorner.com/article/generating-random-number-and-string-in-C-Sharp )

It's always good to experiment on your own with codes. If you have ideas you want to implement, go for it. If you are stuck, take a break and maybe do some more lessons. In the end, the sololearn c# course touches the main topics but in order to make them stick in your head, you should try to apply them in practice. I think one important topic missing from the lessons is Linq that is just the best feature of c#... So you'll need to do some additional reading (microsoft documentation, stackoverflow) to get acqainted with that. It is really worth!
