Hi everyone. I am really passionate about computer science. I use one everyday and I have tried to many different things be it creating a dvd menu and burning a disk to creating amazing presentations for my school.

I am soon going to start computer science again at my school. I want to do more than that, so many people want to get into the computer business and I have realized that I need to step up.

My question is: What is a good book that I can buy (preferably via amazon) that can teach me about computer programing and computer science?

I found one book: Beginning Programming For Dummies (http://www.amazon.co...38760246&sr=8-1)

Is this a good book? I want something that explains it to a beginner (like the book above). I would also like to try out some programming myself, even the simplfist program. Is there any book that is simple and gives me examples and tells me to try different examples and see if they work and maybe even throw in some examples of what not to do?

I hope you understand my question, I really want a good book to help me.

Any of these books good: http://www.amazon.co...dummies&x=0&y=0

Extra note I believe these books contain CD with them. Hopefully they can help me and they work with windows 7.

Thanks for helping me and my future? :D


What about that one?

To be fair, the for Dummies books have a good reputation in my 'book' ;) So that's definitely a good one to start with. However, if you are really interested about Computer Science I would recommend just using the internet to do your research. You're going to need it lots. And when I say lots I mean LOTS :whistling: That being said though, Just pick a language you want to learn and start using Google to find information about the language. Perhaps even some tutorials that will help you write your own program. That's how I started writing my programs in Python. :)

Hope this is a help for you.
