    Post Great preparing computer science books for University

    Hello fellow Ubuntu users! In the several past years I frequently visited this forum but never made an account, so as you can see (beans) will this be my first thread!

    I have stumbled the last several months over the internet with the same question and I never really could find the answer. Because of my great interest in computers I want to learn almost everything about it (who wouldn’t?). But I really don't like surfing the web all day so I'm searching for some well written books and some that will prepare me for University.

    I have already read some good books, examples of these books:
    - C ++, PHP, ruby, HTML, JS etc (languages)
    - Algorithm and data structures
    - Networks

    But, I want to have books that cover almost everything about computers. From the most beginning (hardware) to the rest.
    For example I found a good book about mostly every computer algorithm (The Art of Programming vol 1-4) from Dr. Donald E. Knuth. But I want more of these kind of collections!

    Does anybody have some recommendations? Thanks in advance!

    If you want to learn Java the Java Tutorials are excellent.

    http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/

    If that alone doesn't do it for you, you could always pick up a copy of Big Java by Cay Horstmann. I think the current edition is the 4th.
