Format: Paperback
I am a COBOL teacher at a small, private college, and I am also a COBOL programmer at a large steel mill. For my class, I used this book. It's index and glossary were excellent, although you had to know exactly what you were looking for. The content itself was delightfully vague, so my students asked me many questions, and I was able to make fun of those questions. It is a mystery to me why they did not like this book, after all, I am a COBOL programmer, and I understood it just fine. For all you teachers out there, I hope you will make your students use this book.

By A Customer on January 4, 1999

I am a computer science student at a small private college, and for two semesters, my class used this book. This book weighed about five pounds, and I kid you not. Also, the index and glossary left a lot to be desired, the concepts were poorly presented, and the content of the book was dry and lifeless. Perhaps a good comparison for this book would be a DOS manual, or a book on quantum physics. A better book for an aspiring COBOL programmer would definitely be COBOL for Dummies, and not tihs book. For the love of God, DON'T buy this book!

Format: Paperback
It does a good job of introducing students to COBOL. Its examples are very understandable and its format is logical.
