1. Fundamentals – (B) Hash Functions, Binary Tree, O(n)

If you haven’t taken a CS data structures class but are familiar with programming using languages like C/C++/Java, or even Python/Ruby, you might be able to catch up by going through these tutorials:


1. Fundamentals – (A) Matrices and Linear Algebra

The Khan Academy has a basic, high-school-level, interactive matrices tutorial, but I would recommend their college-level linear algebra tutorials:

  1. Vectors and Spaces
  2. Matrix Transformations
  3. Alternate Bases

It is especially useful to be familiar with eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and eigenvectors.
