I have absolutely no idea how to even run the command 
cd cits3003/labs-examples/CHAPTER02_CODE/MAC_VERSIONS
When I tried putting this into my terminal it just said 'is not recognized as an 
internal or external command'.
Anyone know what I am supposed to do?
Thank you

Weird.  If the directory doesn't exist it should say no such file or directory.  Not sure why cd wouldn't be recognised.

Have you tried running the ls command to make sure 'cits3003' is a directory that you can change into from your current location?

Don't panic. You'd be best to learn some basic terminal commands before you go forward. You've started off in the right place, using the terminal to type in commands; these commands will do things with text that you'd normally use clicks to do, like change folders, rename things, copy and paste.

The command you've typed in the screenshot is cd, which stands for change directory. This will move you to another folder, so it will only work if you're starting off in the right folder.

I can see from the screenshot you posted that you typed the command in once and it worked, then you typed it in again and you got an error. This is the thing with terminal: if you type in a command and it works successfully, usually nothing obvious happens. You mostly only get feedback if you did something wrong.

I suggest you read up on and practice the terminal commands. Here's a site to get you started : https://www.dummies.com/computers/macs/mac-operating-systems/how-to-use-basic-unix-commands-to-work-in-terminal-on-your-mac/

Is their some permission somewhere I have to give access to. 
As I don't see how to give permission, I have attached the error I am getting.

maybe try find where your cits3003 folder is and then in you terminal do:
   > cd   <drop cits3003 file here>

that is, drag and drop your cits file into the terminal window after typing 'cd'.

hope that addresses the directory not existing error.

Haha so I've gotten to this point
Thanks so much for your help!
I have now the following error I tried editing Makefile in nano to try fix this but it 
says that the file is unwritable. Not really sure what to do at this point.

Can you please share what OS version you have? From your first post, you were trying to seek into MAC code and it appeared that you are on MAC machine. 

Please confirm.
