Intro CS classes

<p>Out of everything I will be taking next year, the only classes I'm worried about are these..CS1301 and CS1331. They're required and I don't have much interest in them at all. </p>

<p>I have never taken a class about computers before. Is there some basic knowledge I should have going into this? Do kids learn this stuff in high school now? Would the Constructing Proofs class be something that would help before I took these? TX!</p>

<p>Constructing proofs (CS1050) would not help with those at all; they are completely unrelated.</p>

<p>Most people do not "learn this stuff in high school"; otherwise these classes wouldn't be so popular. So there is no basic knowledge they expect you to have, other than a willingness to learn.</p>
