Courses Discrete Structures or Probability and Statistics Engineers

  1. Nov 11, 2016 #1
    I was wondering which course will be more beneficial to take first for a first year student majoring in computer science?
    Note: I tend to dislike proofs and theories.
    Discrete Structures - An introduction to the basic concepts of statistical analysis with special emphasis on engineering applications.
    Probability and Statistics for Engineers - Introduction to set algebra, propositional calculus and finite algebraic structures as they apply to computer systems.

    Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

    Looks like you have the course descriptions swapped. As the descriptions state, the prob/stat class is better for general engineering and the discrete structures class is better for a computer science major.
