Yes, it does. Computing (data structures, OOP, basic algorithms, etc.) and Discrete Math are the classes that turn the most people away.Ashcrow, Taeshadow, does this happen at your institutions? *We have a Data Structures class, and only about 30% of all students actually get past this. *All the upper level CS course have this as a prerequisite. *It's the filter class. *If a person doesn't get through that class, they most likely won't be getting a CS major or minor. *I have been told that CS has some of the most difficult classes on our campus.
I'm studying Math/Comp Sci. at *KU Currently involved in my Phd on neuralnetwork. Should be done in 6 month or so, if it all fails I'll settle for my current job, as system-programmer for the department of defence.
