## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am a first year computer engineering student. Having programmed several years, I realize my math skills are not adequate for my liking (planning on improving them before tackling some more advanced data structures and algorithm books).

My plan is to read how to prove it, spivak calculus, a probability book, and maybe something about linear algebra in the 4 months I have off. (I already have taken linear algebra, but I'd want a more theoretical book)

I've been considering replacing one of these books with learning Euclids Elements, as I noted that Newton's intellect peaked after reading this book. As someone who has never taken geometry before, would it be worth doing geometry in my summer for my major?

I plan on studying very hard, 10+ hours a day, 6-7 days a week.
