Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Some of the major uses of Python language are given below:
 Software development
 Web development (server-side)
 System scripting

These are some tips you can use to prepare for Python programming assessment:
 Daily Practice
 Consistency is the key to master any language. Strictly committing to code every day helps in assimilating the concepts of the language.
 Pen-and-Paper Approach
 While you are progressing on your growth journey of becoming a developer, you could consider taking notes by hand to retain what you learn. This process is beneficial for those who want to strengthen the basics of programming. Writing also helps a candidate plan his/her code before practicing it on the computer.
 Be Interactive
 Learners who are either understanding basic Python data structures or debugging an application can make the best use of interactive Python shell as a valuable learning tool. However, first, you need to have Python installed on your system. And then you can follow step-by-step instructions to activate the interactive Python shell.
 Avoid burnout
 Practicing without a purpose can take a toll on your mental health. You should take short breaks between your learning sessions. In programming, it is imperative that you don't miss out on even a single quotation mark or else it will affect your code.
 Peer learning
 Although coding seems a bit like a solitary activity, it can yield better results when you work together.Surround yourself with other learners who are learning Python as well. This collaborative approach will help you learn the tricks of the trades along the way.
