## Practice creating conditional statements?

Highlighted

Hello friends!

I think I need help with the building blocks of conditional statements, or a better understanding of the logic behind them. I am not finding this aspect of the ADAPT course very intuitive, and I have never learned SQL, so maybe that's why. I understand the basic ones but creating a compound conditional statement is a muddled process for me so far.

Other than just stumbling upon the need to use the Formula tool in the Challenges, is there a more systematic way of learning this either on ADAPT or elsewhere?

Thanks!

Hi @StellaBon ,

Could you give me the week number of the conditional statements in the ADAPT program please ? I'll check how it is explained to be able to help you in the optimal way.

Cheers,

Hi,

It begins on Week 3, Day 5 of the fundamentals path. I have completed everything up to, but not including, the Capstone Project. Before I do that I am taking a week or two to do more Challenges because I am still pretty slow in general. Thanks!

Hi @StellaBon ,

That's really nice to dive into challenges, you'll learn a lot by doing them but also looking at how other people solved them !

I'll look into the ADAPT program where you indicated me !

About conditional statements, you are struggling with statements combining many conditions ? Or with statements having nested conditions ?

Hello,

It's the nested conditions that are the trouble. Thanks!
