    Awesome book for CS Introductory...

    Whew! I just got done with the finals in scheme. This book contains a great deal of information. Some of my favorite topics in it include the huffman algorithm, and the streaming. I think I learned a lot from this book and the biggest gain I had was the grasp on recursion. Iteration is awesome because I have done c++ before. Recursion always gave me a nightmare previously. This book introduced us the idea of head, tail, and tree recursion. Once we got deep I got pretty good at recursion. The book taught me how a program gets evaluated using environment diagram. It had a lot of examples and presented students some kewl theorems. I will definitely Keep it next to my bed.
