Books tend to get out of date rather quickly and it's always best to type the code yourself. That being said I'd recommend the following (in no order what-so-ever) :

Wes Bos - 30 day Vanilla challenges

http://wesbos.com/javascript30/

O'Reilly - Expensive but extensive! They cover everything under the sun. Try a free trial, it's really an amazing resource.https://www.safaribooksonline.com/home/
Reddit - Learn JS subreddit. Lots of news/suggestionhttps://www.reddit.com/r/learnjavascript/
Free Code Camphttps://www.freecodecamp.org
Khan Academy - I always forget about them! But it's good stuff.https://www.khanacademy.org/computing/computer-programming/html-css

Skip anything from W3 schools. I block their search results in google because their code is garbage. Take notes when you watch and follow along by coding. Don't just repeat their steps, try to understand what was done and predict what they will do.

And finally never stop learning. Good luck! Reach out if you need anything else.

Mario Party 1. Picked it up on a Friday afternoon and returned it for a full refund the next morning. That was also the first game I ever returned.

I don't usually pre-order games, but I did with this one. After watching the GB peek today I cancelled it. I have a couple of concerns and I want to hear the final verdict from a few places. It's been a great couple of weeks and I have to play catch up on a few titles anyways. I'm definitely going to play it but I can sit on that purchase for a while.
