1. ## Hey guys

So I didn't know where to turn to regarding this so i thought I'd ask here. I have to take a computer science placement exam, and it's going to be over these topics

1. Algebra (I got this down not even worried here).
2. Java (I've been studying this since I began this semester getting the hang of it, i think!).
3. Logic Math (I have no idea what this is).

I was wondering if you guys could give me an example, of logic math for programming, or maybe a link that I can use to study. I know I should ask my school but all they said was that "It's common sense." My math department said "It's common sense." I just want to see the concept of it before I go into the exam not knowing what it has.

Sorry for always bugging you guys.

2. Not sure, but when I think about Logic Math and Computer science, something like false OR true AND false result to false.

EDIT:
I found Mathematical logic on wikipedia... Maybe this is it.

3. Probably things like:
1) What is E8 & 3F ?
2) What is 11 | 22 ?

Possibly also things like DeMorgan's law.

Nope.

Probably more like this Boolean Algebra

So my thought was more successful of the google search ;p

Absolutely! I think the term "logic math" threw you. I'm pretty sure he means boolean algebra, which as you said is ANDs and ORs.

7. Or could be Propositional calculus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia .
Which is called Logic by the math people.
