In this paper, a study was conducted to understand how students' attitudes and tendencies toward reading affect the newly emerging coding education. Relevant data were collected by dividing it into three areas (reading, coding, and leisure). In the reading area, data on preference books, preferred types of reading and etc were collected. In the coding area, prior learning of coding, main tasks using a computer, time used for learning and etc were collected. In the leisure area, main leisure activities and hours of spent leisure time per one week were collected. Using the collected data, we classified and analyzed the data based on the preferred reading method to identify the problems of non-major students who have difficulties in coding education. In coding education, the excerpts reading student group showed the best achievement (average 60.1), and the extensive reading group showed the lowest achievement (average 48.4). The students who read extensively spent more time in coding study than the group of students who preferred other reading methods, but showed the lowest achievement.
