Reading CS books doesn't make you a computer scientist any more than
listening to violin records makes you a violinist.  Write out answers to
all the exercises in those books, and get your answers to the more
difficult ones checked by a professor, and you'll be getting somewhere.
That's the point someone else was making about self-study: without
someone checking your answers at first, it's easy to not learn to
recogize your own mistakes.

Anyway, as someone else once said, studying a subject like CS isn't done
by reading.  It's done by writing out answers to problem after problem.
Unless you've been doing that, you haven't been studying.
