How to Think Like a Computer Scientist. Ihtroduction it covers such traditional topics as computational complexity and simple algorithms, the book focuses on a wide range of topics not found in most introductory texts, including information visualization, ontroduction to gjttag randomness, computational techniques to understand data, and statistical techniques that inform and misinform as well as two related but relatively advanced topics: There are also extra code samples in the textbook that aren’t covered in the lectures.

The course and the book are both great! While i understand that it is a part of learning CS, this book will not be easy someone new on the subject.
