    Or wikipedia
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Wikipedia is user submitted content and is highly fallable. While for programming, they provide fairly accurate information, I'd say half of their content came right out of a horse's ass.

    On the other hand... again, what's wrong with google?

    Isn't the whole point of going on a course to get a clue?

    If you're intending to learn the course before you even show up, why are you even bothering to attend (and pay for presumably) your courses?

    It never hurts to be prepared. Offen you need to pay for a course just to get the qualification and they won't let you skip to the test.

    I try to read most of the book before the first class.

    It's your best bet if you want to REALLY know what you're gonna cover in the class. That, and you could go to your school and try and get a copy of your course syllabus.

    uh whats wrong with wikipedia?!
    usually googling for computer science related topics reveal a link to wikipedia within the top ten results anyway...
    but also if you want a quick overview of something youve never heard of wikipedia is just great.

    anyway: i guess when you hear the course youll say: "all that stuff can also be done without objects (e.g. pure c code)- the oop sucks"
    but once you understood it, you wouldnt want to move away from it again
    (at least i started with c, then learnt c++, and now i never want to touch pure c code ever again)
