I am new to programming (I have done some basics which I really enjoyed but honestly, just the tip of the iceberg stuff)
I'm starting a degree in Software Development in February and I was thinking about working through this book: http://www.amazon.co.../dp/0273771388/
which was given to me by a friend who recently finished his Computer Science BSc. Anyway, my question is, does having prior knowledge of coding (i.e that taught from this book) help on a degree course? I don't want to have to learn a load of stuff and then effectively forget it and relearn it when I start the course. I know in some subjects outside of IT this is the case....
Hope you can advise!
