The course consists purely of text explanations and an interactive programming environment to write and run JavaScript. It's not a bad intro to Javascript, but exercies can get a bit tedious and the lack of video lectures makes it a bit impersonal, and it doesn't go beyond the basics. The updated course has a better interactive environment and better exercises than the original; its good to see Codeacademy improving their content.

The instructions ask you to something like a do/while loops without any other information. Some sections supply code when there's no instructions for it. Most do not. So a student like myself wouldn't expect to declare variables since it never asks for it or supplied with it. This makes course difficult and annoying for beginners. I had multiple "syntax" errors although the syntax is correct. It is just missing information.
