Learning/Mastering jQuery

These days most of my projects are done in .Net with MVC.  In order to get the pages to work properly I need to write a lot of javascript and jQuery.  I decided to take a course from  Benchmark Learning to help me improve my skills with it.  Here is a list of the resources I am using to improve my skills.

The “CSS” column indicates in which CSS version the property is defined (CSS1, CSS2, or CSS3).

#id #firstname Selects the element with id=”firstname” 1
* * Selects all elements 2
