Looking for a university
category: general [glöplog]
(some switched to architecture, biology and philosophy, the bulk became microsoft certified system administrators)
just making sure: you did think about whether you wanted to study CS at all, right?
I don't know anything else that I'd want to study. :P Of course I don't know what exactly I will come across during studying, but at least it can't be much different from what I want (i.e. I do like maths kinda and programming and stuff)
just don't go for "historisch orientientierte kulturwissenschaften" ;)
Hok ist geil!!
I recommend you to study any other thing. Computer science sucks...
texel: that's just in Spain :)
i know some hot chicks doing HoK, but no real man™
If you have two brothers who did that already, you don't have to.
did i ever mention that i'm a huge fan of german comedy? things like that always crack me up.
xeNusion: I'm so bad at explaining things to my mates already. I can't go for Lehramt.
Lehramt is for PUSSIES
It would be nice to try this one: http://www.lnt.de/LMS/research/projects/WFS/index.php?lang=eng
I'm not the best in maths (11, that would be a B), dunno if that's the right thing for me...
You could grab a book about linear algebra, as that is what your first lectures will be to see beforehand if you will hate it. If you feel overwhelmed by reading the book, just remember that it will be easier to learn in university, as there are lectures and fellow students and practice groups where stuff that was in the lecture will be explained in more detail.
Some "Vorlesungsskripte" in German:
Analysis (this and linear algebra is probably all you will face in informatics): Analysis I (analysis 2 is a2.pdf)
As I said, (nearly) everyone will be overwhelmed at first, so don't be disheartened if that's tough stuff for you. If you actually like what you see, go for informatics or even mathematics or physics.
(Damn, this post was much too useful for pouet...)
You just have to invest a lot of time. I failed my first university math exam because I was too lazy. Now everything is fine and I know how much time I need to invest to get things done properly :) (4. Semester Informatik upcoming - exams of the 3rd Semester are exactly around Breakpoint - so I wont be there :/)
Yes. there are 90% girl in HoK. So you have to be a real man to deal with all the ladies :-)
Joghurt: Intersting, thanks, I'll have a look into that stuff.
You should go abroad, to the University of Linköping, Sweden. They have computer science there, and funny guys and gals running around in overalls. Plus the town of Linköping will make you really depressed and appreciate home more.
