Super slick.

Exercise on the homepage is v well presented.

1. Muscle memory has nothing to do with "mastering" Vim.

2. The chapters only cover basic features so the "mastering" claim is extremely overblown.

3. The meanings of j and k are inverted right from the sample exercise. This doesn't inspire much confidence.

If you _really_ want to learn Vim, forget all about that $25 nonsense and do it properly with :help user-manual.

I know this is also an option in vim itself.

However, If I can just move the cursor around in the exercise on the homepage, even though it specifies that you'd have to 'j', and 'k', what is the point?

The value of vim, especially for navigation, is not requiring the mouse for navigating around a document.
