I frequent r/cscareerquestions and if one piece of advice gets reiterated more than any other, it is the importance of programming as a hobby.

I took programming fundamentals I and II at TCCD before I decided to transfer here, and I was surprised to find out that fundamentals II is equivalent to compsci I not II. In addition, programming fund I (a 4 credit hour class) is equivalent to the developmental programming class offered here that people test out of in like 15 easy multiple-choice questions. I'm hoping CS2 at UTD is much better than what I already took. I hope you didn't fall into the same trap I did.

>would not programming in my free time also be damaging to my undergraduate journey towards a CS major/job?

I personally think if software development is your goal, then not programming at all is going to limit your opportunities when you graduate. I think ideally you want to get an internship and get paid to program. Doing it on the side can help you get that internship. Also, If you care about programming, then it makes it easier to read about it. A good book I can't recommend enough is clean code and/or the video series of the book.

I mean its just like anything else in life. I can play the first few bars of the song "One" by Metallica on the guitar, but I can't play the whole song. Why? because I never put in the effort it takes to get good at playing the guitar, so I suck at it. Software development is no different.

Look into getting an Aeropress. I'm borderline retarded doing anything in the kitchen but everyday I have several people in my UV apartment building ask if they can come by for a coffee made by moi. Super easy.

Which is perfectly normal but you gave the impression that you would leave it behind which i would recommend against I have a [Corsair Case] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007S02GMA/?tag=pcpapi-20) so mine is fairly mobile except the weight.

Speaking of lasers, just set these up in my room, they kick ass. Tons of customization. Link, also, be sure to get the little Y cable and power adapter. IKEA has them but they are super expensive and only about 4 ft if memory serves. I put them under my bedframe :D

This is pretty good for its price.

Honestly, it was more convenient for me to just buy my own pump. The one I got is like $30 (there are cheaper options available if you scroll down), but at least you know it works, and have it on-hand at home instead of having to find the one on campus that isn't broken.

If I were you, I would either (A) make sure you have a solder vent sucker like this: http://www.amazon.com/Weller-WSA350-Bench-Smoke-Absorber/dp/B000EM74SK/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1414620595&sr=8-1-fkmr1&keywords=weller+solder+vent

or (B) request badge access to the labs. A lot of students don't know this but you can easily request 24/7 badged access into the building and labs. That's how I used equipment any time of the day or night for any reason.

This one, it's simple and basic, does everything a scooter does, and can fold up pretty compact for taking into lectures/classes.

u/2putts4sure · 1 pointr/utdallas

See if you can't buy/check out the REA Chemistry CLEP book for a refresher. I bought the three books for my three exams, read through each and took the two included practice exams, and passed all three of my CLEPs on the first go with just two days studying for each. Had been more than 10 years since I had taken a history class (and I never even took Psych!). Easier subjects than chem though, of course.

She has used this textbook in the past years but I think she's looking to switch to this one.
