How do I learn to do the challenges on my own

I am eager to begin the actual problem solving and practical use of coding. Unfortunately, even on the simplest of challenges I don’t even know where to begin. I’m about 75% through the Python curriculum on SoloLearn and I feel like I should be able to do something on the easy challenges, but even with my searches online to answer questions and going back through the curriculum, I have made little progress. What would someone recommend because there’s no real advantage of me going through the course if even after everything I can’t even do the most simple coding challenges. I understand what I need to do but I can’t format it. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Hi! You can always share your codes here, and we'll be happy to help. If you have attempted to solve any of the challenges, just make a post containing the name of the challenge and your attempt, and we'll try to find the error.

Solving a challenge, or writing a code is more about creating a sequence of events to achieve a result, than the actual syntax involved. The syntax is important, but you need a plan of the steps you wish to take in order to apply the syntax. I like to write my ideas down, with notes on how I might achieve these ideas. Then build your code, testing function of each step before incorporating into your main code. This way you aren't building on a false concept. Suddenly, you will have a complex code built on simple concepts. Your confidence will grow with time and practice. Don't give up!

Just Learning won't help you you should practice everything you learn play around with the code and search for simple projects in python and try to do them this way you'll see what you've learnt in action so basically the best way to improve your self is not by doing the challenges but by practicing
