So how do you get comfortable with the math before tackling CLRS itself?
Others suggest that the appendix in CLRS serves as a guide to the mathematics needed to understand the rest of the book.
I might as well come right out with it.
I'm going back to school. Community college. For computer science.
I was ready to do it all on my own: find a language and a framework and a reason to learn them and go. (A few months ago, I even learned a little Go.)
