what math/programming topics should I revisit and prepare for

Posted 19 June 2014 - 06:34 PM

Hey,

In September I'm going to university, I don't think the name is important but it's a university in Slovakia (if anyone's interested http://www.fiit.stub...ml?page_id=749)

My math education through highschool wasn't that good and I'd like to revisit some topics and learn the ones that I will need during my studies and maybe even later in work. But I have zero idea what topics are the most prevalent in CS.

As far as programming goes I do have "some" knowledge. I do roughly understand how OOP works even though I haven't coded much using OOP principles.
Today my friend introduced me to stuff like data structures etc. Since I learned most of my programming knowledge from various sources such as codecademy, youtube tutorials etc. I don't really know much about this theoretical side of programming and CS i.e data structres, alghorithms (I think I've seen a list of algorithms that every programmer should know on Quora) etc.

Any suggestions on important topics from math and programming are very welcome.

I don't really know much about the math classes on the UNI, pretty much the only thing i know is that they first start programming in C, then Java and my friend has been doing a project in Ruby on Rails.

Thanks.

Hi,

Maybe you could check out the course catalog for the program that you are going to be enrolled in. Certainly they will show you what math subjects/course that you will be going trough. One of the most important math subjects in CS is Discrete Mathematics.

I have a blog entry on relevant math courses for CS folk. You might want to check it out.
