I'm brand new to java. my only programming experience was with game maker 7. but maybe i'm blind but i had trouble with the first two course tasks. the first was writing: System.out.println("text"); I wrote: system.out.println("text"); there was no mention of capital letters being important until after the task was done. the second task was to print text 5 times I wrote: String 1 = ("text"); System.out.println(1); System.out.println(1); System.out.println(1); System.out.println(1); It didn't work, so I fiddled around trying to find a typo but it was all fine. stumped I gave in to the hint only to find that my first line was supposed to have an extra word in it not mentioned previously. i cant remember exactly what it said. Is the whole course gonna be like this? it feels like i'm being set up for failure, and it"s discouraging.
setup for failure?

This course is mostly about practice. You should get a good theory source as a supplement. Try Head First Java (2nd edition) and/or Java: A Beginner's Guide (8th edition). It will become much easier to figure out errors once you start working with IDE (in a few levels). Also, don't hesitate to use Help Section. 😉
