    Post What math is needed?

    Hi, I have always wanted to be a programmer but felt that because my math skills aren't good enough then being a programmer will never happen. Do I really need to be great at maths as a whole, or are there some math topics that I should develop my skills in?

    Thanks, TechBlizzard.

    P.S. If you could also name any books that will help me that would be great.

    You will need math ...
    Java provide the Math class to help you but the more math you know the better programmer you will be =) (according to my teachers at the Uni).

    I guess it depends on what kind of programs you want to make.

    I would like to one day get into game development, so when I know more Java I would like to start making games.

    For advanced games , you have to know a lot of math ... 3d games etc ... for simple games you only need to know basic math...
