I'm wondering how long it takes you to complete a task. One project takes me several hours to complete, even after reading and reading I usually complete them by trial and error.

Yeah, go easy on yourself. I think we all have different paces and still we don't know what the quality of the work is.

My first few assignments took me 5-6 hours to complete with reading and researching and then trial and error. I was quite frustrated and felt I must be very behind, surely with a shorter class like this and our close deadlines, I must be waaaaay slow. The current assignments are slightly easier for me but I'm still spending 2-3 hours on each with reading.

Looking at how many people have uploaded their assignments on time (or at least posted that they have) as well as having the opportunity to see what others have struggled on, has really given me some perspective and I'm glad Tim makes us do that as it has helped me. It's ok to be slow, at the end of the day the important thing is that we learn, but yes, I've had to stay up rather late to get these done, as I don't usually have an extra 5-6 hours daily lol.

Anyhow, just wanted to share my thoughts in support and let you know that I at least am also spending a lot of time on completing these assignments and you're not alone.

I think it depends on the assignment. assignment 5 took about two hours. The lab 2 took about 5 hours but still not sure how I got it to work but I did. I am sure it was not the most efficient process the instructor was needing.

I think it maybe the while statement might help with that. It is supposed to run until the criteria is met.
