    "If you like science and general MIT information then I guess I recommend this book. I could only read a couple pages before putting it down, but I'm sure in the right hands it's amazing."

    "While this topic is somewhat convoluted, I am not totally certain this subject fits the topic very well. Whether it is taught in MIT or not is something that needs to be verified. Also this book has nothing to do with electrical engineering, only computer science. These are two vastly different fields that, although share many cross competencies, are separate and need separate sources of information"

    "I'm looking for an MIT reference book for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science to purchase for my husband. This one looks promising for computer science, as it is highly rated although I'm surprised it only has 3 reviews total. I also don't think this one has any electrical engineering text in it. Overall, it looks like it could work but I will probably search a little further to see if I can get something with both topics in it."

    "The best MIT syllabus book for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science is Concrete Mathematics: A Foundation for Computer Science (2nd Edition) written by Ronald L. Graham, Donald Ervin Knuth, Oren Patashnik. This book introduces the mathematics that supports advanced computer programming and the analysis of algorithms. The focus of the books is to provide a solid and relevant base of mathematical skills - the skills needed to solve complex problems, to evaluate horrendous sums, and to discover subtle patterns in data."

    "I needed the best MIT syllabus books for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I found C Programming Language. I'm studying programming and electrical engineering at my university. This book is just what I needed to learn the C programming language. It's easy to understand and yet really in-depth. It makes learning the C language a breeze. Strongly recommended."
