That Panda module is no joke. I can see that difficulty level is just gonna ramp up from here.
Man I tried using Pandas and NumPy on the side and it kicked my ass every step of the way. I think the most I did was generate a table and then give up.

That NATO alphabet code looks a lot simpler than I expected it would be - a couple days ago I had a though of that being a nice easy challenge for someone new to programming.

This should be when the interesting practical stuff gets covered. Manipulating files is unavoidable.

Python makes it easy to loop over lists, but sometimes you need a traditional C-style for loop that let's you use the iteration of the loop. I did some file operations in a script where I needed to use the index to know where to markup a file. This link is a helpful tutorial:

Pay attention to isPrime, that's a method implementation that comes up in job interviews from time to time. Prime numbers are only divisible by 1 and themselves, which allows you to shortcut some math by checking from 2 to n / 2. It's an optimization that pays off for large n. I think there's also some other mathematical trickery you can employ on that, but at that point you really aren't solving a computer science problem, but a math problem - as an interviewer I'd never expect or even want the mathematical answer.
