I am using a landing page that have exactly the same content as one of the pages in my side.
So, in order to avoid duplicate content penalty, I will add in the following code in my landing page.
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow" />
Is doing that good enough? Or do I need to do more than that?
And also, can you help me check if the code above is correct?

Those meta tags work well on a regular site (i.e., not WordPress).
And if you're on WordPress, install the Robots Meta plugin, then click the noindex, nofollow radio button on your PPC page (and index, follow on your SEO pages).
All the best.

this is actually great advice, as i was going to use a landing page with content that was on ANOTHER part of my website. I think this should be mentioned in the course, as i'm sure many others would've been penalized for this.
John, my question is, after installing this plugin, then make my landing page, how do i go to this radio button?

After installing a plugin you need to make sure its activated and then these meta options should appear when you edit or add a page in WordPress.
