The first step to getting started with Python is making sure you have the latest version of the Python programming language installed on your computer.
This chapter will guide you through installing Python on Windows, macOS, and Ubuntu Linux. If you have a different operating system, you may want to check out the Python 3 Installation & Setup Guide maintained on realpython.com to see if your OS is covered.
How Real Python Quizzes Work: Each quiz takes you through a series of questions related to a particular chapter in the book. Some of them are multiple choice, some will ask you to type in an answer, and for some you’ll be asked to write actual Python code. As you make your way through each quiz, it keeps score on which questions you answered correctly.
At the end of the quiz you receive a grade based on your result. If you don’t score a 100% on your first try—don’t fret! These quizzes are meant to challenge you and it’s expected that you go through them several times, improving your score with each run.
We inteded these quizzes as a fun way for you to check your learning progress as you work your way through the book. They will help you identify weak spots in your Python knowledge. Use this to figure out which chapters and exercises in the book you should re-read. Once you can complete the full set of quizzes for the book with a 100% score you should feel proud of yourself. You’re a real Pythonista now!
