If you're hoping to test your mettle in the world of computer science, you'd do well to check out this informative and erudite course offered as part of the OpenCourseWare initiative at MIT. The course was created by Professors Eric Grimson and John Guttag, and it includes a syllabus, readings, lecture videos, assignments, and exams. The materials here are "aimed at students with little or no programming experience." Visitors might want to start out by looking over the syllabus, and then move on to the "Readings" area. Here they can find selected excerpts from key texts, including "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist". Even better are the lecture videos from the course, such as "Binary search, bubble and selection sorts" and "Divide and conquer methods, merge sort, exceptions". The truly ambitious will also want to look over the assignments and exams offered here.
