    Hello everyone,

    I am taking an introductory course in Javascript and wanted to ask people good sites to help me understand all the terms and getting second source aside from my textbook on the subject.

    Any advice on learning this is greatly appreciated since I am struggling trying to learn what is to what and what is called what.


    Thank you

    The W3 Schools site is a great place to start out. It lays out the basics for you and will give you most of the terminology you need, which you can then use to form good search terms to find more detailed examples when need be.

    I just hope the text book you're using is teaching you to access elements through the DOM (Document Object Model) rather than the older methods, which primarily only work in IE. This forum can also be a good spot to get feedback on something you're learning, just don't expect us to do your home work :)

    Looking at people's comments on the book and looking through the table of contents it looks like the book does talk about the DOM, and so hopefully use it too. The book was published 2004, which is promising as well. I think you'll be OK with this book, especially considering it as a introduction, though it looks to have some more advanced topics as well like prototypes and inheritance.
