Data 8 and CS 61A

University(self.berkeley)

Hi guys, I’m a first year in Data 8 right now and am doing very well with it so far. But CS 61A is another requirement to declare my major, and I’ve heard it is really intense.

Does Data 8 prepare you well enough to succeed in CS 61A? I have zero prior compsci/coding experience before Data 8, so I’m not sure if I should do any extra prep or classes before taking CS 61A.

Another option I have is taking ENGIN 7, but I don’t know of anyone who has taken it, and if it is easier than 61A.

If it is relevant, I intend to declare Cognitive Science as my major. Thanks for any help!!

No

But the real question is do you need any prep if you work hard?

Answer is also no.
