Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
Finished Objective-C book... can't understand iOS book
Hi! I've never programmed before, but I had (still have) a strong desire to make an app. So I started out reading Kochan's book on Objective-C. I finished it and learned a lot, but I also felt that a lot of information flew over my head.
After finishing Kochan's book I started reading The Big Nerd Ranch iOS Programming book. I read up until chapter 10. Throughout the book I felt that there was too much information I wasn't absorbing/understanding. I decided to take a detour and tried reading The Big Nerd Ranch's book on Objective-C. I hoped doing so would help me understand iOS programming better by reinforcing my knowledge of Objective-C. I spent a couple days reading it and I read up until the last 4 chapters. The last couple of chapters talked about advance C topics, such as applying bit operators into your program. I found the material too difficult and since I already finished the bulk of the book I decided to go back to BNR's iOS book. However, I didn't find the iOS book any easier than before. I also felt like I didn't learn anything new from reading BNR's Objective-C book either.
I'm not sure what I should do now. I still want to learn how to program iOS apps, but I feel like BNR's iOS book is too difficult for me. Should I find another iOS book or reread Kochan's Objective-C book/find another Objective-C book to read?
