>>7642818 I personally used it a lot for math, it's a nice slow and intuitive lesson taught by someone with nice handwriting and explains things throughly. While I don't think it should replace a real class, it's a good review and brushes up on concepts you might kind of understand but things that aren't worth asking the professor about.
>>7642818 Maybe cause its just good at teaching things? I mean it taught me 1st year chem far better then my university did. Not to say there is something special about khan academy in particular, I got the same level of teaching from other videos/online courses.
>>7642818 You will notice that every person to recommend Khan Academy is either retarded, or a professor who mentions it offhand hand for students that can't keep up.
We had one guy in our Mathematics course who wouldn't stop complaining about the lecturers and how he would just look things up on Khan Academy when he got home.
That guy dropped out after the first year end of semester exams. Didn't even show up to them.
I don't doubt that they can be helpful. I just think one ought to consult a book sooner than look it up on a website. If you can help it, always get an authoritative book on the subject and study on your own. Don't be a normie who just studies for the exams around the corner
>>7644013 I actually read the book and consult khan academy later if I really don't understand it so I almost never use it but yeah I honestly find the videos very annoying even at 2x speed. Wouldn't really understand using it for much besides physics tho.
But I'm going to have to use khan academy for coding later on because that's really the only thing I can think of to teach me. Any anon know any good online coding "classes" besides khan academy? Don't know if I can handle his videos.
>>7644068 What coding/language is this? I'm probably going to irritate you, but just get a pdf online of whatever language you want to learn. Programming can be taught quickly, but you will have to dwell on concepts before they sink in. That's a big reason why people struggle with programming; it depends on your initiative a lot more than most subjects(at least when you're getting started). A book is more helpful because you will generally be given example after example that you can copy and inspect before implementing it on your own. I learned C, my first language, by putting in 4 hour days for 8 weeks. I wasn't an expert, but I rarely had an issue with anything; if I did it was only ever some small piece of syntax I couldn't recall exactly. But I had covered the entire language in that time. My college spent two years working through the whole language.
This adds on to what I mentioned before; take it into your own hands and put in the time and you will get there fast. No point waiting around if you can help it familia
