How to Build Your Own Computer Science Degree

August 29, 2020

Note: You can find the video lecture for this article at https://youtu.be/C-RZUWOBDpY

 

 

The following books can be used to study core computer science topics at the college / university level, to prepare yourself for machine learning, deep learning, artificial intelligence, and data science.

These are the books I recommend for building your own computer science degree. Remember! The goal is to do as many exercises as you can. It’s not to just watch 5 minute YouTube videos and then conclude “I understand everything! There’s no need for exercises!”

This quote from the video sums it up nicely: if you don’t find the problems, the problems will find you.
