Struggling to follow the UNREAL tutorial

I’m not sure if anyone has the same problem, but when following the lectures I feel like I’m almost just copying exactly what Sam writes, and not actually learning the basic syntax. It’s a sense of achievement once one tutorial is done and the code runs. However when the syntax reappears in later tutorials I realise I’m not aware of what the syntax means and I haven’t been learning at all. I’m on lecture 35 (if statements) and feel completely overwhelmed by simple operators now.

I think everyone has gone through this when they started learning their first programming language. It is quite common. It usually takes quite some time for starters to grasp the syntax and be confident with their basic C++ knowledge. For anyone starting to learn C++ with no previous programming knowledge I suggest this book.
