This introductory course will give you an overview of our field.  However, its main purpose is to teach problem-solving and teamwork, as well as to teach you how to be an excellent computer science student.

You'll need two ScanTron cards, one for each of the two tests.  Here's the link to the card that shows how to fill it out: http://utdallas.edu/~John.Cole/Images/ScantronForm.png
Textbook: Studying Engineering, fourth edition, by Ray Landis.  ISBN 978-0-9793487-4-7

Optional:  The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking, by Edward Burger and Michael Starbird. ISBN 978-0-691-15666-8

I came across The College De-Stress Handbook by Jeff Goelitz and Robert A. Rees from the Institute of HeartMath.  The link will get you to a free download of the e-book.  This appears to be a useful book, especially if you suffer from anxiety or stress.
