ETH Bachelor Entrance Exam

Hi everyone!

I would like to study Computer Science and so I need to pass the ETH entrance exam. But I have no idea how to prepare by myself. So if someone do it before, please help me, which books you used, and how it actually works (i mean an exam process). Learning computer science is my dream, I hope you help me!

It has the reputation of being exceedingly difficult, and a very solid percentage fail outright.

Whether you have to take the full exam, or only part(s) of it will determine what you'll specifically cover, but a bit more background on what you've learned so far would be useful. I assume you've spent some time on the ETH site to determine what/if you need to write?

a) Can't you learn this at home? b) Do you speak any Swiss languages? Bachelor's are taught in Swiss languages, not English. You can find out more on the whole university entrance procedure and other info here:

Yes, I need to pass a Reduced entrance exam, so I need to learn only Math, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. But I don't know this subjects on German. So i wondered maybe someone knows specific germans books by this subjects?

Thank you) I understand that it will be on German, but I am learning the language now (B1) and I have half a year before the exam so I hope with the language everything will be fine. I just need to learn (repeat) this four subjects on German, so maybe you know some books?
