Be sure you make it to the ones scheduled. Only your best five quiz scores will count. One reason behind allowing you to drop your lower quiz scores is to create some slack in case you need to be away from class during the semester either for a planned activity e. Note also that the quiz will be administered in class but it is impossible to predict exactly when during the lecture it will occur.
While the class will not always follow the order or presentation style of the textbook, the textbook is an excellent source for much of the material.
Students can use older versions of the textbook if they so desire. In addition to the textbook, you should download and possibly print the Lecture notes. These are based on teaching of CSCI in past semesters, and cover the material quite accurately as presented in class. However, the lecture notes may be out of order as we have changed the schedule slightly.
In addition, we will post Powerpoint slides the day before lecture. Notice, however, that the lecture itself is intended as supplemental to the textbook, not a replacement. Reading Assignments Readings from the book, lecture notes and other sources form the base of your learning pyramid.
These readings contain theoretical concepts, examples and usable code that will be very helpful for all the work in this course. It is strongly recommended that students read the relevant chapters of the textbook before coming to class.
Class will proceed at a brisk pace and often be more focused on providing extra intuition and discussions rather than rehashing the book content in great detail. Other forms of academic dishonesty are equally unacceptable.

Syllabus Required Textbook.
We are using the textbook C++ for Everyone by Cay S. Horstmann. It has been ordered to the USC bookstore, or you can order it online. Reading this book is mandatory: lectures will reinforce the material it covers, but we will assume you already have basic familiarity each week with the chapters that are required reading.
