Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would recommend Stanford's CS106A Programming Methodology. I think it's a good course for a beginner and you'll realize whether or not programming is for you within about 12 hours time. http://see.stanford.edu/see/courseinfo.aspx?coll=824a47e1135f4508a5aa866adcae1111

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not a programmer, but... firstly it depends what you are thinking of doing with your programming... rsmith made a good suggestion java is probably a useful language, but I am finding Python easier to start with (I decided to switch from Java), although it seems to be less highly regarded. MIT Intro to Computer Science is what I am learning it with.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I've done both the MIT Intro and Stanford's CS106A. IMO, without a knowledge of calculus, Stanford is better. Their course's full name is Programming Methodology. MIT's is required for all engineering disciplines, Stanford's is for every discipline, not just engineering.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0http://math.hws.edu/javanotes/ has a free book on java and goes right from the beginning of programming to advanced programming techniques. He also puts demonstration files on there. Java's a great language to start with because it is multiplatform and is easy to work with. Many universities introduce programming with the Java language because it is the simplest for new students to understand.
