Revised to reflect changes in the programming industry – as well as user feedback – this successful book emphasizes that problem solving is the same in all computer languages, regardless of syntax. Uses a generic, non-language-specific approach to present the tools and concepts required when using any programming language to develop computer applications. Is designed for readers with little or no computer experience, but is also useful to programmers at any level. Provides step-by-step progression and consistent in-depth coverage of topics, with detailed explanations and many illustrations. Covers topics ranging from the basics of mathematical functions and operators to the design and use of such techniques as code, arrays, pointers, other data structures, database concepts, and object- oriented programming concepts. A useful reference for programmers.

For introductory level problem solving for languages, problem solving for applications, or any language course found where problem solving is a part of the course work. Designed for students with little or no computer experience, this text provides a step-by-step progression-with detailed explanations and many illustrations-from the basics of mathematical functions and operators to the design and use of such techniques as code, indicators, control-breaks, arrays, pointers, file updates, report handling, data structures, and object-oriented programming. The tools of problem solving-including problem analysis charts, interactivity (structure) charts, IPO charts, coupling diagrams, algorithms, and flowcharts-are demonstrated and explained throughout. This is a revision used by thousands of students.From the Publisher:
Teaching the basic problem solving students need to know and understand when working in any language or application, the third edition of this comprehensive text provides a step-by-step progression of topics and consistent in-depth coverage. With detailed explanations and numerous illustrations, this text encompasses all fundamental areas of problem solving from the basics of mathematical functions and operators, to the design and use of such techniques as codes, indicators, control breaks, arrays, pointers, file updates, and report handling. The essential tools of problem solving (including structure charts, IPO charts, algorithms, and flowcharts) are explained and demonstrated extensively throughout, and the text establishes the four basic logic structures: sequential, decision, repetition, and case structures. The text includes coverage of problem solving techniques for horizontal software such as word processing, spreadsheets, and database management systems.
