9780201545418: Programming Abstractions in C: A Second Course in Computer Science

This exciting new data structures book provides students with powerful procedural programming skills that will serve as a solid foundation for later object-oriented programming. Throughout the book, Eric Roberts takes a library-based approach to the concepts, which allows readers to see more advanced programs early on. This innovative use of libraries will motivate students as they begin tackling more advanced data structures topics. In the first section of the book, Roberts brings readers up-to-speed on libraries and also provides a nice review of C. Eric Roberts is famous for his wonderful writing style, his use of real-world examples, and his special "bug features."

From the Back Cover:

Written by a master teacher and author of the highly acclaimed The Art and Science of C, this new book helps students master the fundamentals of data structures while encouraging them to develop strong software engineering skills. By emphasizing modern programming concepts such as interfaces, abstraction, and encapsulation, the text provides an ideal foundation for further study of programming. With his clear explanations and engaging writing style, Professor Roberts leads students through the CS2 curriculum in a way that captures and holds their interest throughout.

Highlights
  • This book introduces several library packages to simplify the programming process, making it possible for students to concentrate on high-level conceptual issues without being distracted by the complexities of C.
  • It contains an extensive discussion of recursion, including a large number of sample programs and exercises that range in difficulty from simple recursive functions to the minimax strategy for analyzing two-player games.
  • It emphasizes the practical skills necessary to write solid, reusable code.
