Supplementary Videos

Udacity and LearningLad both have some good videos on methods. You should watch both sets of videos. Udacity’s videos are more instructional in nature while LearningLad’s are more hands-on tutorial.


For an overall review of methods, refer to this video by LearningLad. But note, in this book you use static methods until chapter eleven. In the LearningLad tutorial you use object methods rather than static methods.
