    Your aim should be to understand the course rather than going for a specific grade - Once you can say that you understand all (or most of) the material, the grade will come naturally (you might even end up with an A+) . If I were you, I would talk to the lecturer for the course. Depending how far behind you are, you will probably be able to revise the basics by putting in a bit of extra study time (Maybe going over any notes you might have from before).

    I'm sure plenty of people will be happy to help you if you run into specific problems with assignments or programs you've made. check the FAQ link on the forum about asking homework questions - most are willing to help beginners understand the language, but they'll stop at "spoon feeding" (since that sort of practise really doesn't benefit learning anyway). Also, consider trying some beginner tutorials, or even buying a programming-by-example beginner's book. (Again, check the Announcements and "Sticky" threads at the top of the board).

    Good luck! and remember that the fastest way to learn the language is to get your hands dirty by trying out the examples and questions for yourself.

    My former A-Level Mathematics tutor used to keep cartoons and slogans around his office. My favourite one of these is
    Cheating...
    Asking for help isn't Cheating
    Using a calculator isn't Cheating
    Looking in the back of the book to see how they got the answer isn't Cheating
    Cheating is pretending to understand when you don't!

    That is when you are Cheating yourself!

    Thanks Everyone for your input. I am not looking for someone to do my assignments for me, the problem is I don't even know where to start. Thanks

    Well my tutor would consider all of that cheating.
    Anyway i don't have anything against cheaters, it's just that i'm not a good person like you Bench82. I wanna help this guy just for fun, i know that my help to him wouldn't be helpfull, but it seems fun so i'm doing it.
    But since you are a good person, you are trying to really help him, but that's boring.
    So in a way i'm evil 'cause i'm thinking only about my level of fun, and not about how will this guy turn up in future. But it seems this guy will turn up just fine...

    The board is here to help people with their coding troubles. So if you have a question, post it. Just don't expect us to do the work for you. If you aren't sure how to ask, then read up: How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

    I know them not: not therefore am I short

    Every assignment is different, you should start each assignment with what you know or what is easy to do. For example if an assignment ask you to create a function, then you need to understand what a function is and how can you create such a function. this board has a lot of tutorials and a lot of people will help you whenever you are stuck with something.
    When no one helps you out. Call google();
