the finer points of big-O notation Full disclosure: I’m a software developer, and have been for the past 15 years or so, but my background is in physics (I have a PhD in computational physics) rather than computer science so obviously there are going to be gaps in my knowledge as a result (case in point: the finer points of big-O notation, various problem solving strategies and so on)This book will not give you an in-depth description of all the things that get taught in a compsci degree but it _does_ make a decent…

Succinct useful intro to CS Great simple explanations of fairly complex topics. Was very easy and interesting to read, and not dry at all.What I also liked about the book was that it didn’t try to squeeze too much information in.

I would recommend it to people who are learning to code to get a deeper understanding of what your…

For those interested in a computer science degree The Book makes a good base line for anyone who is thinking about doing a computer science degree as it essentially goes over the base line of topics that are covered, typically within the first year of a starting. Because of this it can provide a great baseline for those who are thinking about starting a computer science related degree and a base understanding of what it entails.
