Starting C++ & Computer Science Major
I'm majoring in Computer Science at my local college and prior to comming to this college, I had absolutely no programming knowlege, just the enthusiasm that I liked computers.
So after a few semesters, I realize that my college only teaches the basics of C++ in one, 4 month semester. After that, there isn't anymore C++ classes, or really any other programming courses except for an intro to Java in another 2 semesters from now.
So, now I'm kind of stuck. I know basics of C++, but that's it. All of my computer science courses are theory now, no programming whatsoever. They are making me take a lot of math and physics courses, 6 math, 3 physics in my major, and a bunch of Computer theory classes. I only find time to try to code during summer break.
I bought a C++ book to learn from: "C++ How to Program 4th Ed" by Deitel and I just finished chapter 5 strings, but there are no solutions to the programming tasks at the end and I'm having trouble getting my programs to work.
Please, any advice on what direction I should be going or any information to help me learn what I need to know for a Computer Science would be aprriciated.
