How do I run the python interpreter on my computer? I am told I need to run it. But Where and how?
This question is marked "community wiki".
I think they mean in the multiple choice questions.
I am thinking the same, you are told you can use the python interpretor to test out the problems before choosing them.
I think the interpretor should always be loaded under the video section so we can use it any time, that or have a link at the side which open the interpretor.

If you do want to download Python, the link is: http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.6.7/
(Note, the course uses Python 2.6, there are later versions but these may use different syntax, so your answers might not work the same locally and here).
There is discussion on the best Integrated Development Environment (IDE), if you use Windows you can read more here:
Hope this helps!
