If you could condense your BS degree into 10 books or less, what would they be? by Carlos Matias La Borde
Answer by Carlos Matias La Borde:
The useful topics that there are textbooks on:
- OOP with Java
- Algorithms & Data Structures
- Discrete Math
- Software Engineering
- Artificial Intelligence
Well, what do you know… I got it done in 5.
The specific textbooks don’t really matter; none of them jumped out at me as brilliant, and I honestly can’t remember any of the names. Though for Algorithms it’s pretty obvious to get a copy of CLRS if you can.
Something else worth studying: Stats I and II. But I’m not sure if a book would cut it. I’d recommend just about anyone who can manage it to take stats.
Extra bonus: How to Solve It by Pólya. Generally useful.
(There was plenty of other stuff like OS concepts etc. but I got the most applicable stuff out of the above.)
