Learning Computer Science

Post by remake20 » Wed Nov 20, 2013 12:34 pm

I play on a team with literally no knowledge of computer science. So I was wondering what resources on computer science you would recommend to get a grasp on the area. I'm not looking to become an expert in the subject, just anything that will allow me to answer a lot of common questions.

A lot of computer science questions at the high school level are on data structures or basic algorithms like sorting. An AP Computer Science study guide should help, especially if you can find one for the now-discontinued AB test which covered more data structures like stacks and heaps.
