joemath314159 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
hmm.....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.

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

joemath314159 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
its 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.

but still... the basics will remain the same no?
 2 years ago

joemath314159 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
yeah, basics are generally the same. Usually finding some "intro to (whatever)" book does the job.

joemath314159 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
make sure to red the reviews on the book though, to make sure its a good one.

joemath314159 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
oh, 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 =/

yes or else i will make a fool of myself reading the wrong book..lol

and how do i make that sure then? if its not high lvl n low lvl?
 2 years ago

joemath314159 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
it 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.

It 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 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
i 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..

Although you will probably take courses discussing a broad range of topics at the undergraduate level.

One 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.

oh still HTML, C,C++,Java,python? What all should i do in which order and if possible from where?
 2 years ago

Alchemista Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Sorry 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 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Really 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.
 2 years ago

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

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

Akshay_Budhkar Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
And any online source you know that can help me learn coding?
 2 years ago

Alchemista Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Err, 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.

They'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.

Can we specialize in more than field?? Engineeering and CS say?

Engineering 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.

There is a computer engineering program though

The 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.
