There were times when I didn't really understand, but when completing the exercises and seeing myself fail and then figure it out really solidified in my mind. Thanks, and this might be my favorite tune!

"Assembling Sass" was my first course at codeschool.com. I found out about this site via a mention on Twitter. A few comments: 1. First of all, the site itself is beautiful and very polished. 2. I found the course contents and challenges to be very good. The instructor did a good job giving examples of some common pitfalls as well as describing how to avoid them. 3. I could do without the opening theme songs on the videos - I just end up skipping those. 4. I couldn't tell what my overall progress was within my course while I was making my way through it (i.e. Part 4 of ???). 5. It was not immediately obvious to me how to reset a challenge to its initial state if I wanted to start over again.

I really enjoyed learning Sass, but I felt like the last half of the course it reviewed a lot of the same topics. I think by increasing the difficult of the challenges or adding new content it could make the course feel more constructive.

You should drop the embarrassing and annoying songs in the beginning, try taking a hint from tuts+, a cool animation is much more professional and makes the student feel that he's getting a valuable lesson not a teletubby pink dinosaur type of lesson. Also the fact that you can't skim through the course videos without taking the tests is annoying. The second to last challenge (from the last lesson) would not accept the otherwise valid #($type): $query as being ok, although the output CSS was ok, I had to view the solution to figure out what the challenge wanted me to type in. Otherwise good course, thanks for that.

And am 100% comfortable writing in Sass for my current project. ALL IT TOOK WAS 1 DAY! Thank you guys, this was seriously helpful and got me past the only barrier I had before working in Sass for my projects. I thought I was pretty fast in CSS and this hasn't changed my mind. However, maintaining and updating big projects is actually looking fun, not burdensome. I'm trying to think of some constructive criticism for this course, but I'm at a loss. I think the only thing that would have been better would be more difficult challenges. Thanks again! @stevemanuel

Easy to follow, good challenges, learned a lot in a short amount of time. Could you please find some more prizes other than code school cash? I really enjoyed earning a free month of something, or a book coupon as with older courses.

As well as being a great introductory resource; touching on the many facets of SASS and CSS pre-processing, this course really opens the eyes to just what is achievable and inspires me to go out hunting more SASSy goodness to increase the efficiency of my stylesheets. SASS rocks!

The video tutorials are excellent. The step-by-step in assembling Sass can be complicated and daunting. If you were trying to figure out on your own, how to put together Sass and found yourself a little frustrated, this course is for you. From simplifying your CSS via Mixins to tackling responsive web design through respond-to, this study in Sass is very good in discovering where Sass makes sense. I implore all web designers to take this course. CSS preprocessor will be as standard as Responsive Web Design in the next year or so. Best to be ahead of the curve than not.

Already fairly familiar with SASS, this course immediately allowed me to be more comfortable using SASS, and a heck of a lot more efficient with it. If SASS makes CSS fun again, this course makes learning or reviewing SASS a blast! From covering the new %placeholder nesting selector to the @content and its use with the respond-to pattern convention for practicing responsive web design with using SASS, this class provides you the latest best practices with SASS to boot too. I highly recommend this course.

I'm no expert in Scss but this seemed fairly easy. I breezed through this course but I did pick up a couple of tidbits that I will use in the future. Looking forward to the Sass 2 course. Also, no rewards for finishing this course? None were listed on the wrap up page.
