I'm about to return to college after a multi-year absence. I'm going to be majoring in computer science, since several articles explain that these degrees are in exponentially-increasing demand.

 

I think it would look really good on a resume if I could say that I made straight A's in all my COMS and MATH classes. To maximize the chances of getting those bragging rights, I'd like to spend a total 40 hours per week in the books (since that's how many hours I'll be spending at work when I graduate). Whatever hours I'm not spending in class or doing homework, I'd like to spend doing freelance studying.

 

But here's the problem: I've looked on google for "extra math homework," but the sites I've been able to find only give me K-12 level math worksheets.

 

Can somebody help me find a site where I can enter my current math or computer science classes (including college-level math), and get curriculum-appropriate math problems or COMS problems to do in my spare time? Key word, here, is "college-level."

@stebbinsd

 

Greetings! Congratulations for returning to your collegiate studies! Yes, computer science is of great interest for many. As you are aware, it is quite intensive and demands high level of thinking and hours of dedicated study and persistence!  

 

Let me recommend Pearson. This company is utilized  for all levels of education, specific to augmenting learning strategies. I feel you will find a 'just right fit' for your needs! I have implemented full course level learning in the K-12 educational environment, however you'll find that Pearson has a large impact within community college and university level learning.

If you do make a phone call, be prepared for a bit of a hold; they are quite busy. There is also a live chat option. 

 

Let me share in advance that the curriculum is self leveled to suit your specific learning levels. Their product is not 'cheap' however valuable to support success with higher education.

 

All the best! If Pearson does not suit your particular needs, or budget, let us know!

From what I can tell from that website, I have to pay for this service. I'm looking for free extra homework. I can't afford to pay.

You might have to contact a local community college or university math department and ask if they have any free worksheets, or, workbooks for dirt-cheap.  Be sure to describe what mathematics and what levels [graduate or post-graduate] of difficultly you are interested in.

As I had shared, "Their product is not 'cheap' however valuable to support success with higher education." What you are looking for will be a stretch for free. I'm afraid I'm of no use to you.

I encourage you to speak with your college adviser, or your professors who can recommend additional homework. As well, free tutoring sources specific to your coursework.

 

Good luck!

I Googled 'free college level math courses' and this was one of the top results.

I don't know of a free site that allows you to plug in your current levels then creates a curriculum for you. Free most always comes bare bones and with DIY feature sets.
