It seems being able to program is a very valuable tool to a student studying physics (about to be a 3rd year). I'm transferring from a CC to a four year soon. I noticed a lot of the universities I've been accepted to have had their sophomores take some programming this year. Over the summer I'm planning on doing some self study and programming is one of the things I'd like to tackle. I'm a bit torn though on what and how I should study and what will give me the most benefit for my time. In order to receive the best advice I guess I should say that I have very limited experience with C++. A few years ago I somehow got into it for a few weeks and wrote very simple programs (guessing games mostly for my girlfriend, calculator, etc.). So, in short, what do you feel would be my best route to enlightenment that would help me in my studies of physics. I thank anyone in advance for their reply and time.
