Bootcamp Prep
Skill up to pass the Grace Hopper Program assessment

Bootcamp Prep takes candidates who already have experience with code to the next level of programming. It covers the specific coding and JavaScript concepts you'll need to know to pass the official Grace Hopper assessment and go on to succeed in bootcamp.

To make sure you're ready for this course, take the practice test below. A score of 6 or higher means you should sign up, while 5 or lower means you should wait and get a better handle on the basics first.

What you'll learn

The curriculum for Bootcamp Prep includes lectures, workshops, pair programming, coding challenges, and a culminating project--many of the same elements you’ll find in our immersive programs, which is why Bootcamp Prep is great practice for ultimately enrolling in a coding bootcamp.

All of our Bootcamp Prep courses (especially Prep In a Week) are demanding and intense. They are not for true beginners (anyone who has never written any code before) and we recommend them only for those who are actually considering attending a coding bootcamp like Fullstack Academy or Grace Hopper Program.


Defining and invoking functions


Data types


Control flow, truthy/falsey, and loops




Multidimensional arrays and nested loops




Approaching problems, review and mock interview

Bootcamp Prep Online is taught by Fullstack’s founders

If you take a live version of Bootcamp Prep, then you’ll be taught by one of our extraordinary instructors.

But if you take Bootcamp Prep Online, then your instructors will be David and Nimit, the founders of Fullstack Academy and the Grace Hopper Program.

This is a great opportunity to learn from two accomplished software engineers, who bring real passion to their lectures... and a bit of silliness too.

Bootcamp Prep
Required Pre-Work

Once you've taken the practice test, confirmed Bootcamp Prep is right for you, and enrolled, you'll get access to some pre-work. It takes about 10 hours to complete.

It includes 5 lecture videos and several coding challenges, plus solution videos to help you understand the answer to each challenge.

The pre-work takes about 10 hours to complete and, once you have successfully completed it, you'll know you are prepared to do well in Bootcamp Prep!

All students are asked to complete this pre-work before the first day of class. It will prepare you to succeed in class--or reveal that you aren't at the right level for Bootcamp Prep and need to request a refund before class actually begins.
