Book Vs Online Resources

People get confused sometimes to decide the best way to learn Programming language.

I was also confused in choosing the resource(Book Vs Online), when I had started learning JavaScript.

But, I chose online resources(e.g Blogs) over books. But it’s get tough to find where to Start Learning JavaScript and what to Learn. So I Purchased a book to learn it, because all the content listed there are in correct order.

And When we choose online resources to learn any Programming language, we waste our most of the time searching for the perfect content. But as a beginner, it’s very difficult to decide which resource is great, and we waste our time reading shitty contents.(I have also wasted my time searching online contents 😉 ).

So I will Prefer Books over Online Resources for a Beginner.
