    Hi, I'm just struggling to write the personal statement for uni, and I need to do some reading and maybe some online courses on computer science.
    I've found the CS50 by Harvard university and a book called "Algorithms to live by: the computer science of human decisions" should be helpful. Also I've found the oxford reading list, but I'm not sure which one to read... Does anyone know the course or the book?
    What would you recommend that will be good for the uni application?
    Thanks!!
