Going back to the basics to solidify my foundation, one each quarter. Good Practice makes one a better engineer!

Digital Electronics using [1] Operating Systems using [2] Functional Data Structures using [3] Graphics Algorithms [4]

Any recommendations for these subjects sincerely appreciated. Thanks.

Another fantastic MIPS resource is a book by David and Sarah Harris' book "Digital Design and Computer Architecture".

It is a great book that covers digital logic, computer architecture, HDL design (both Verilog and VHDL) and the MIPS architecture.

before getting to FPGA is helps to understand computer architecture and digital design 101, this book is a great intro with examples in verilog/hdl: http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Design-Computer-Architecture-E...

as a side benefit I learned MIPS assembly from this book which is very helpful in understanding assembly languages for other architectures, and assembly snippets in Knuth's TAOCP

I think this list is missing some important parts of computer science.

Here are the books that our university uses for first-year students combined with books that I found to be useful:

Introduction to Programming (using Eiffel) [1]

Mathematics for Computer Science (or: Discrete Mathematics) [2]

Introduction to Datastructures and Algorithms [3]

Introduction to Digital Design [4]

Parallel Programming (using Java) [5]

Optional but highly recommended, you'll probably find it completely out of scope:

Real Analysis I [6]

Real Analysis II [7]

Introduction to Linear Algebra [8]

Introduction to Physics [9]
