Well, that may not be all bad. So many of the JS books are pure crap.
There is a *HOPE* that your instructor may avoid some of the pitfalls.
Here are a few:
-- alert() and prompt() and document.write() are obsolete. You might use them while debugging but never in final code.
-- putting <script> in the <head> is usually not the best idea. Among other things, it means you are pretty much stuck with doing set up code via window.onload (or <body onload="...">). It's not "wrong" to do that (goodness knows I wrote enough pages that way!), but it often makes tons more sense to put the JS after the HTML is going to affect.
There are many others. Felgall can educate you on. Read his site.
