- Basic concepts can even become confusing if you are a beginner.
- Lack of time, motivation and dedication for a new language and so the temptation to go too fast.
- If you are coming from another language, then it becomes difficult to forget what you have already learned.
- The never-ending question of where to start never stops as the tooling topography is vast and goes through constant reformation.

1. Be a voracious reader:
2. Over-thinking about self-confidence is a foe:
Don’t let confidence get into your head and turn into overconfidence. People normally think they already know enough, but when it comes to learning JS, past knowledge isn’t enough. Try experimenting with new books; grasp as much knowledge as you can. This can be the prime problem while moving from HTML to JS. But JS presents the advanced scenario.
3. Don’t just be nerds, start getting practical:
Books can only give you a theoretical knowledge, but you are the one who is going to convert the theoretical knowledge into applicable cognizance. Whenever you learn something new, make sure you practice enough to get comfortable with it. Play with all the facts and figures that you have learned. Start basic programming and find your strong as well as weak points that you need to work on.
4. Watch experts code:
You learn what you see: Isn’t it true? There are many pitfalls in this too. Whenever you generally learn something by mere seeing it, it seems quite easy but when it comes to applying that acquired knowledge people generally fail miserably. The prime reason for this is the gap between learning and application of the acquired facts.
5. Analyze the code:
Analyzing the code is not a piece of cake. But if you want to study the code, then the best way to do so is grab a pen and paper and start writing the codes. To understand the source code written by others, just reading won’t help: you need to practice the code until you drag it into your very own comfort zone and get acquainted with it.
