Practice Exercises

Are you interested in learning HTML and CSS? I created these HTML and CSS exercises in order to give students a fun way to study for the HTML/CSS exam.  (The remaining exam content is covered in this slideshow: Study for the HTML/CSS Exam. )

The flashcards cover the most commonly used HTML and CSS used in my everyday work as a web developer. Memorizing this set of HTML and CSS will improve your fluency as a developer. Developers always look up how to code, but if you can memorize the most commonly used HTML and CSS then you will be a faster developer.

Rather than requiring that students memorize all of the HTML required to correctly set up a page, I expect them to recognize the code and place it in order. In real life, a developer starting a new website or web page will start with a template or copy some code she/he previous wrote. While it isn't necessary to memorize all of the HTML, web developers need to recognize the elements, understand their purpose, and be able to place them in order.
