Hi Im pretty good at html,css, and javascript and I want to start jquery. I heard that you have to go to a website to download a file and save it where you do your projects , and then you have to reference it in your work. Well, is there a way to do jquery without doing all that?

I believe you need a copy of jquery.js. It's really not that big of a deal; the jquery website shows how to do all of it.

Yes there is, you can link to a Google hosted library instead of a local file. Google hosts a number of JavaScript libraries for just this purpose. Here's a nifty site that makes it very easy to copy the appropriate code to link to a number of these libraries including jquery.

Under jquery, click 'copy' and paste the code into the head of your documents.

more specifically, jquery is javascript, and you obviously need to download said javascript and then reference it in your work.
