Advice for students:
Have an open mind and a hunger for the inner workings of a tool that is a major part of all business and homes. Computer programs which almost seem to just work magically become your playground as your imagination is your only limitation. Pay close attention to the terms presented to you and read and reference the text book often, very often. Allow your self plenty of time to work on your programs and dive deep into the logic center of your brain. The more streamlined your thinking and the quicker your program can complete the steps necessary to solve your problem the better. Keep focused and constantly think of how to improve on your next programming by logically thinking through each process.
