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]

Subject: Linear Algebra Recommendation: Introduction to Linear Algebra by Gilbert Strang Reason: Strang presents the subject so clearly and intuitively that you feel like an expert on the subject after reading each chapter. It is by the far the best textbook I have encountered. He is also an excellent teacher and offers the lecture notes to the corresponding MIT class online.

The course is taught by Gilbert Strang, who has written an excellent introductory textbook on the subject:
