First of all, I'm very excited to start the course! I'm studying Computer Science in the Netherlands at the moment, and since there isn't a course that puts all the pieces together, I decided to start this project.
However, I was wondering if someone could give an indication of how much time it would approx take to do the entire course. I know the course officially was given as a 1-semester course, but does that mean full time, or is that like 15 hours a week?
I have no idea how long it will take you, I can't remember in my own case.
I completed the chapters up to and including chapter 10.
I think that you won't measure it in hours because it's engrossing.
If you're happy for it to be your recreation and don't have too many
demands on your time then I'd say you could average a chapter a weekend.
I presume all chapters are meant to be about the same dificulty but as a rule the
earlier chapters are easier, I think.
I found Ch5 hard until the 'penny dropped'. and I think that many of the later
chapters seemed harder to grasp but were very satisfying once you do.
I plan that one day I'll get back in and start again and go through to the finish.
It's the single best book I ever bought on anything.
