Book Description

February 18, 2012 1111969752 978-1111969752 7
Prepare beginning programmers with the most important principles for developing structured program logic with Farrell's highly effective PROGRAMMING LOGIC AND DESIGN, COMPREHENSIVE, 7E. This popular text takes a unique, language-independent approach to programming with a distinctive emphasis on modern conventions. The book's clear, concise writing style eliminates highly technical jargon while introducing universal programming concepts and encouraging a strong programming style and logical thinking. Clear revised explanations utilize flowcharts, pseudocode, and diagrams to ensure even readers with no prior programming experience fully understand modern programming and design concepts. Farrell's proven learning features help students gain a better understanding of the scope of programming today while common business examples help illustrate key points. Readers can use this proven book alone or paired with a language-specific companion text that emphasizes C++, Java or Visual Basic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good deal on a needed book August 14, 2013

Good deal on a needed book...
Book lays out the basics and is needed for my college programming course, not a whole lot to say because if your told you need it you need, but I would think about shopping around for a different source if you are not required to have this as when you get to topics like Object oriented programming the descriptions become vague and very poorly writen, which is sad because that is such an important concept.
