Coverage A quick look at the course schedule should give you an idea of the main topics of the course. You can also go to the official course description.

Reading the Textbook Before class each day you should read the sections of the textbook listed on the schedule for that day. You should also attempt all exercises in those sections, unless instructed otherwise on the schedule. In other words, all exercises are "suggested exercises". You will learn a lot more by doing these exercises than by sjust reading.

Be sure the read the entire section(s) indicated, and do all of the exercises. Each class will start with question you may have about what you read, including going over any of the exercises you had difficulty with. After clearing up any confusions, we will spend class discussing some of the topics in more depth, seeing example programs, and writing new programs. If you are not doing the assigned readings and exercises, you will not get nearly as much out of the course as possible, and it is likely your grade will reflect that.
