Hi guys,

I'm having a lot of trouble with my computer science course, I dont understand a lot of it. I have no clue what to do . I try to read about my modules online but I still dont understand it, everyday I wake up nervous and anxious. Im so scared that ill fail. Could someone advice me on what to do?

Btw, my modules are:
  • Programming - C language
  • Computer systems architechture - building an ALU
  • Mathmatical Foundations - This one is alright for now


Im at a russell group university, I feel like the dumbest person in the class, I'm behind on my coursework. I cant fail!

Do you have access to a C development environment? If you do, you can compile and run C programs on your computer. Programming is not something you can learn just by reading.

Yeah I have a compiler, I've been trying to learn. I reckon that if i keep experimenting with c programming I will learn however I'm having more problems with Computer Systems Architechture. I just dont understand the basics which dosent help at all I dont get what a pin is or a bus is or even an ALU, multiplexer etc.

ALU is part of the CPU and carries out the arithmetic calculations of the system, read up on the components found at the CPU

The CPU has registers SUCH as the ALU BEING one of them, A BUS is a way of communicating with the registers back and forth from the CPU,

Why don't you search for different parts of different modules?
