What's to learn? I was considering enrolling for a CS degree. But before that I wanted to relearn some concepts I already learnt in college during my graduation and Cost Accounting degree classes. Below is a list of topics I am revisiting with the aim of:

Are you going to learn anything about programming?

Your list seems reasonable for a CS degree, although I'm a bit surprised you didn't take several of those math courses as part of an accounting degree. I would consider calculus, probability and statistics, and linear algebra to be prerequisites to accounting.

I did. I did learn most of the topics in the list. Every few days, in fact, I revisit by trying to solve, say, an LP maximization problem using the Simplex method. Or doing the graph of an Economic Order Quantity problem. There are some topics (most of them) in those list that I have already learnt in school, college and in my Cost Accounting course.

How about learning greek, starting with the work kilo !

work = word.

Go learn Operations Research
How (and in what school) is calculus and linear algebra a pre-req to basic cost accounting?

I did have Operations Research in my second last semester of Cost Accounting. I scored 76% in that. I said there were things I wanted to <EM>relearn</EM>, in the light of new experiences I've had developing code. Some things in that list, are still new to me, like ASM and data structures and algorithms (though this one is not completely new).
