Best advice for a starting out CompSci student
· July 1, 2016
Hello, I am currently in college as a junior, and I have finished my basic computer science I and computer science II classes(Both were based in c++). My question is, would it be wise to, in my free time during the summers, focus on what I have learned and polish it to a higher level, or should I focus on what I am going to learn so that I am better prepared? For example, my next two CompSci classes are to be Assembly Language and Data Structures. Should I get a head start on those classes? Or perhaps it would be better worth my time to focus on c++ until I'm at a proficient level?(To clarify I feel comfortable with c++ as a language, but I don't feel like I would be helpful in a job orientated position with my current knowledge. We focused mainly on non-practical examples in class). I would appreciate any feedback, and I apologize for my rambling.

well you can study for your next class but still take a few hours or days (maybe weekends) to review and preserve your knowledge in c++

I'm in the same position as you. I'm currently after finishing my first year of a four year course in Computer programming(Games). We did Basic java and object orientated programming with java. For my summer i just got to know the part in what we learned that i was iffy with and then i started project in what we will be moving onto next year and 3rd year. Learned C and Python(Basic not in depth just to have a head start next year). And also i am currently building a Internet radio to get a feel for electronics and programming with python along with Web Crawling in python. This isn't really advice on what to do but rather what i decided to do for my free time over summer as im pretty much doing the same as you I'd say just make sure you're comfortable with what you've done this year and then go on to get a head start for next year.
Good luck either way!
