Starting Out with Programming Logic and Design, Second Edition, is a language-independent introductory programming book that orients students to programming concepts and logic without assuming any previous programming experience. In the successful, accessible style of Tony Gaddis’ best-selling texts, useful examples and detail-oriented explanations allow students to become comfortable with fundamental concepts and logical thought processes used in programming without the complication of language syntax. Students gain confidence in their program design skills to transition into more comprehensive programming courses.

The book is ideal for a programming logic course taught as a precursor to a language-specific introductory programming course, or for the first part of an introductory programming course.

From the Back Cover:

Starting Out with Programming Logic and Design is a language-independent book that introduces students to programming concepts and logic. As with all best-selling books by Tony Gaddis, this book's useful examples and detail-oriented explanations help students become comfortable with the fundamental concepts and logical thought processes used in programming. This book gives students the confidence to transition into more comprehensive programming courses.

 

It is ideal for use in a programming logic course taught as a precursor to a language-specific introductory programming course, or in the first part of an introductory programming course.

 

Features

  • A language independent approach allows students to gain confidence and build skills before moving on to a loanguage-specific course.
  • Contemporary coverage and Gaddis' acclaimed writing style appeal to today's students.
  • Program design, modules, selection structures, and repetition structures - key topics that beginners must master - are covered gradually and explained with multiple examples.
  • Functions are covered early but with enough flexibility to be discussed later.
  • Menu-driven programming and input validation are covered in separate chapters, allowing instructors to use what they want, when they want.
  • The "Getting Started with Alice" appendix presents an overview of the Alice programming environment.
