Anyone else just skip the exercises? I feel projects keep me more engaged and thinking in more depth. Maybe this is bad though, curious what you guys think. I’m on the 3rd project in Apis/Microservices (URL shortener) though I did skip data visualization (for now).
For me it depends on the subject or skill set I’d be utilizing in a certain project. If it’s something I’m still a novice at, I find doing exercises can be really helpful.
On the other hand if it’s something I know really well, I’ll typically go straight into doing projects.
Now if it’s something like FCC, I’m a bit of a completest haha. I like seeing those check marks. So I’m doing exercises I already know how to complete.
I will say, there have been some concepts I’ve come across that either I wasn’t aware of or had heard of but never had a opportunity to mess with. So even though it’s a subject I know like the back of my hand…I’m still learning some new little things. Which is always awesome.
