Unlike other languages such as Ruby, there is no built-in method to reverse a string in Python. Here are two possible ways to accomplish that: 

1) The 'Long' Way

This approach uses a for-loop with the join method to reverse a string:

2) The Simpler Way

This approach uses Python's 'slice notation' to accomplish the same result:

I think I read somewhere that #1 (for-loop) is faster, but I do love the simplicity of slicing. It looks a little strange at first, if you're not used to Python. But it really is pretty easy to use once you get the hang of it.
