Sounds more like an undergrad program. Too many courses, too little direction.

'Meet Little Bobby Tables'? xkcd seems to have a greater influence than expected. And you really can't evade grammar Nazis when you are on the borderline of being one.

I tried using Cormen in my first sem Algorithms course. I could have burned the book with my gradesheet. Unfortunately, it belonged to the library, and I was short on cash.

This course will require you to be a United follower as a prerequisite.
