Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I had my books for my classes coming up since April. Basically, I dont want the first time i hear something to be in lecture. I was to already have an idea of whats going on.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmm.....well it depends on what classes your taking. I usually go to amazon.com and look for ""intro" type books if its the first class im taking on the subject.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4i will have a look at it too..amazon.. and can you tell me where i can get the books suggested by the universities themselves?

joemath314159

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2its different for each university. The one i go to has a database for each class and professor that lets you know what book they use. I dont know if your University has something like that. They should though. Otherwise you could always email the professor and ask.

joemath314159

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yeah, basics are generally the same. Usually finding some "intro to (whatever)" book does the job.

joemath314159

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2make sure to red the reviews on the book though, to make sure its a good one.

joemath314159

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh, and make sure you arent getting one that too "high lvl". That defeats the purpose. I bought a Diff Equations book that was too advance for me once. I havent been able to read it yet =/

Akshay_Budhkar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4yes or else i will make a fool of myself reading the wrong book..lol

Akshay_Budhkar

joemath314159

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it will say in the reviews. Stuff like, "This book isnt for beginners." or, "this book is for the extremely advanced student...", or, "This book isnt for your first time learning the subject" Stuff like that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It depends on which direction you are heading in. Computer science is a very broad discipline. For instance are you interested in the theoretical foundations of computer science or are you more interested in software engineering?

Akshay_Budhkar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4i still am to decide on computer science or computer engineering.. i just know CS is software CE is both but i dont know what i like as of now..

Akshay_Budhkar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4still wont the basics be similar?

Alchemista

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Although you will probably take courses discussing a broad range of topics at the undergraduate level.

Alchemista

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0One thing that might be useful is to get used to writing code in the languages which will be used to teach courses in the university you are attending.

Akshay_Budhkar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4oh see the point is I have done my 12th in India i am migrating to Canada and hence taking a year break. So I have a years time So in what way should I use it? C C#? languages?

Alchemista

Akshay_Budhkar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Is it true that ppl of UoT dont get jobs? even after it been top ranked?

Alchemista

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I've never heard that.

Akshay_Budhkar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4oh still HTML, C,C++,Java,python? What all should i do in which order and if possible from where?

Alchemista
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry actually C++ might not be that useful. In any case the other thing you may want to spend some time on is other programming paradigms. Depending on what you take you may be exposed to functional languages like haskell, ml and logic languages like prolog.

Alchemista

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Really its just getting used to writing code. In the end writing code is not what you will be learning. That's why being able to write code easily will make life simpler, since you can spend time on the important concepts and theory you will be dealing with.

Akshay_Budhkar
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4So I must learn to write codes.. And for that I can start from any language?

Alchemista

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you've programmed in one imperative language, you can program in any imperative language (for the most part anyways).

Akshay_Budhkar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4And any online source you know that can help me learn coding?

Alchemista
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Err, I can't really help you there. I'm sure if you do a little googling you'll be able to find some good introductions to some of these languages.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4and last question.. Do you know coop system in Waterloo? Can you tell me will it be more advantageous or the regular course at Toronto? And I heard it is hectic in Toronto with projects and stuff.. is it true?

Alchemista

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not really all that familiar with Waterloo or its coop system.

Alchemista

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im doing a joint specialist in math and computer science

Alchemista

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They've changed the programs a bit, so that option doesn't exist anymore. You can still do a double major in those two disciplines though.

Akshay_Budhkar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Can we specialize in more than field?? Engineeering and CS say?

Alchemista

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Engineering and computer science are in two different faculties. Computer science is part of the arts and science faculty, but any engineering program is part of the engineering faculty.

Alchemista

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a computer engineering program though

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The application process is still different when you've gone to school in a different country or even a different province for that matter. In any case it shouldn't be too difficult to deal with.
