    Well, it depends on what you want to get ready for really. If you just want to learn programming so that you'll be a better programmer, then just program whatever you like (I suggest Java, C++ or any other important language that will actually be useful later on).

    If you want to prepare for Imperial, you should get a Haskell tutorial. It's the first language we'll learn. Just Google for one and many will pop up.

    I think the most important preparation is to have a minimal idea of how programming 'feels' generally, the basic syntax that all languages have (data types, functions).

    We have to learn Java, C++, Haskell and Prolog. That's added to all the funky math, the hardware, the computer architecture courses... :eek: Whatever we know, we're screwed.

    In short: if you feel like doing a little programming, well, do!

    Will

    P.S.
    It's not like you're doing horribly painful grammar exercises; it's interesting.

    Hmm I say, doing a little bit of Haskell seems like a good idea!

    Yeah he's not at Univ Of Manchester, he's just a bit obsessed with it because he lives in the Manchester area. He's actually at Salford Uni...I think he's doing Multimedia and Internet Technology...

    25% CS at Cambridge. Whether I carry on with it after the first year will depend on whether I've decided I really don't like the biology or not.

    Will be going into my third year in October at Cambridge reading compsci.

    Alaric.
    So did you do Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry ALL to A-Level and have 7A* 2A at GCSE to get a place?

    All really fierce competition at both Oxford and Cambridge and they are LIMITED places available.

    More mathematical and theory based at Oxbridge?
