    Hi, Ive recently had my first week at University studying Computer Science. Ive joined straight onto 2nd year because I have a HNC in Computing. There is no first year at my University which is another reason why I joined.

    Im having a few issues because im so behind in class. Im currently studying 4 full days a week and university and working another 2 days. So, im struggling to get time in to study. I didnt do much of any programming before I joined also. Can someone give me any tips for studying or point me in the right direction? Im currently studying Java, Javascript & HTML5, Database Development with SQL and Object oriented analysis in this first Trimester.

    Thank you for anyone willing to help me! If I fail I will have to go back into first year and be 2 years behind.

    You want help learning to program?

    I'd search for the official documentation of each language as that will allow you to learn each language at a fast pace. Here is the documentation for Java, that should be useful if you don't have much experience with it.

    Good luck
