Not always a good idea. There are places on the Net where you get good advice, e.g. here and SO (=StackOverflow), but there are other places where you can get poor or incomplete advice, and Google has no way to distinguish them.

At work, you would ask somebody to help, “I think I have got most of it working but……” The same process works for learners. Apart from here, do you have a teacher whom you can ask? Do you have fellow‑students you can ask, assuming they actually know the answers?
to get an idea to finish the exercise code at 100%.
The suggested solution is sometimes suboptimal or worse. But do you dissect the suggested result and see how it differs from yours?

You have had it: programming is addictive
I create something and that feeling is great. . . .

However while I was following the book I did not take the time to solve any problems who was given after each Java lesson. The thing I did at that time was to copy the code of the lesson and modify it a little bit thinking that I was understanding the principle and I was comprehending the material. The exercises following the lessons seem to me too complicate so I never bothered trying to solve any of them. So my question is that : When you learn Java , C++ or anything other language as first language do you guys try to solve these exercises after each lesson? Sometimes I feel that programming is not for me so I stopped for a few months then I feel the urge to try again. Thanks for your answers.

It’s a common belief that Jews built the pyramids, religious tradition but basically the first few books of the Bible None left the archaeological evidence we would expect to exist if they were literal. But I don’t say they didn’t exist; most likely, all these stories had bases in traditions or allegories etc.. that came down through oral histories I think.
