Description

How To Learn Computer Science is for all ambitious students of computer science. Reading this book will illuminate the subject, explaining where each topic comes from, looking at its history and exploring links to wider culture. The book tackles some key stumbling blocks in each topic such as common misconceptions: mistaken ideas about the topic that slow you down and cause frustration. Plenty of 'fertile questions' prompt you to think hard about the topic, and each chapter encourages you to 'Stretch It' by trying some ambitious activities, 'Link It' to other topics and 'Build It' in the form of a practical project. You will also find links to helpful resources and further reading for greater depth, and some super study skills that will help you achieve a top grade.
Read this book for a top grade in Computer Science!
