There are already some great comments here, but I will add a little more. I have worked with many new programmers, the ones who are college educated are not always the best. Some schools teach a lot of theory but don't really teach the pupil to design/engineer/program.

I can recommend three books that can help you be a better programmer, even if it is just opening your eyes to other ideas in programming.
