MIT 6.00 Intro Computer Science (OCW)
OpenStudy (anonymous):

I'm just getting started as a beginner and wonder if this is the best course i should use

OpenStudy (chris):

Hey. This is actually a great course to use - python is an excellent starting language, the course materials are great, and there is a vibrant community here.

OpenStudy (chris):

It will be very challenging - but what do you expect this is how they teach it at MIT. Come here often/while you're hacking, ask questions and others will help.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I just downloaded everything that they said to and have been practicing with the first lesson but I'm unsure of how to make the computer ask a question or arrange the mathematics

OpenStudy (chris):

ok, so you're starting on problem set 0?

OpenStudy (chris):

Take a look at this question - it may help get started.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

hey that page you sent me a link to was a great help but should each question be assigned a value so that it can be recalled and used later

Chris makes a lot of sense. As a total beginner myself, I found PS 0 kind of easy, though I did watch several lectures before typing a single line of code. I also took a peek at some lectures made available by Stanford involving Karel the Robot and Java, which helped me a lot. There's a lot of help in this community...and MIT produces great material. As far as Python goes - personally I find this language to be ideal to start, as the syntax and structure is very straightforward, and rather easy.
