Computer Science Flashcards
Computer science is the practical and scientific approach to computation. It is a science that also deals with the design of computer hardware and software. Introductory and advanced computer science classes are offered in high school and college core curriculum, and each of these courses may be considered challenging. Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools are designed to help students of all ages sharpen their computer science knowledge and allow for a better understanding of Computer Science concepts. The Learning Tools provide flexible review for even the busiest of students. The free online Computer Science Flashcards provide a unique and interactive self-study experience that allows you to more fully prepare for any computer science course or test by revealing the concepts in which you may need more practice.
The Computer Science Flashcards are broken down into five main categories, including object-oriented program design, program analysis, program implementation, standard data structure, and standard operations and algorithms. Within each of these categories, there are two more levels of concept-specific subtopics from which to choose for an even more detailed computer science study session. For instance, within the standard operations and algorithms category, the subtopic flashcards include operations on data structures, searching, and sorting. Additionally, there is one more layer of concept specificity for each of those subtopics, providing you with an opportunity to create a very thorough and intensely focused study experience.
Once you select the category you wish to study, you will be presented with computer science example questions. The sample questions are in multiple-choice format, with several answers from which to choose. After selecting an answer, the flashcard is flipped and the correct answer is revealed. The correct answer is accompanied by a detailed explanation as to why the answer is correct, the process to obtain the correct answer, and links to relevant concepts. Each set of flashcards can be used over and over, because each time you return to a flashcard, the answers are shuffled. This feature assists in a quality learning experience as it prevents memorization based on the order of the selections. The selected flashcard can also be shared on social media platforms with one quick click.
In addition to the online Computer Science Flashcards, Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools include Learn by Concept, which is a resource that can help you get an even more in-depth review. A Question of the Day exercise is also offered. This Learning Tool provides you with a quick computer science review through a randomly selected question each day. Both Full-Length Practice Tests and shorter, focused Practice Tests are offered as well, with timed and scored assessments at the completion of each test. The Practice Tests are presented in a manner similar to the Flashcards, with a tiered content structure that allows you to test your knowledge on specific concepts. The Full-Length Practice Tests cover the full range of concepts you will need to master. When all of Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools are used in conjunction, you will have the opportunity to increase your Computer Science knowledge base through a unique and comprehensive computer science study experience.
