PreparedRequest, you use the method

PreparedRequest we just need to make one, so let’s save it into a
response again. Since we’re just focusing on this, let’s just go ahead and put it into a
post() and type the URL directly. This time.
we’ll send the data as JSON and just put a really simple key and value pair here. All right. Let’s look at our
response—success. Great! So, the
Response will have the
PreparedRequest inside of it—again, we access it from
.request—and then if we put another dot (
.) on here we can see all the different other methods that are available. So we can say, “What was the URL for that?
