    read the documentation read the tutorial in the Python documentation which should be installed on your computer there is also section of the Python documentation that lists all the built-in functions I find the documentation installed on my computer easier to use than the online version. http://docs.python.org/ http://docs.python.org/tutorial/index.html http://docs.python.org/library/functions.html

    in making programs, it depends on the programmer on how to implement or make the code. later on, you'll improve and know what methods or techniques to use.

    As @bwCA said, the official python docs are an incredible resource. I've noticed that often, in this course, most of the important methods are introduced in the lectures before your problem sets are due. Remember that some of the concepts necessary to complete the assignment are introduced in the videos after you get the assignment but before it is due.

    Make sure you break down the problem into logical subtasks, then determine what commands you need to execute your subtask.
