9780321521750: Prelude to Programming: Concepts and Design (4th Edition)

Beginning programmers struggle constantly to balance logic and syntax. Written in a non-language specific format, Prelude to Programming, 4/e,  addresses this problem, giving beginners a language-independent framework for learning core programming concepts and effective design techniques. Gives readers the foundation they need to understand the logic behind program design and to establish effective programming skills.  Focuses on many different languages, but includes “real” problems that mirror the pseudocode problems throughout, in four programming languages (Java, C++, VisualBasic, and Python). Is packaged with the RAPTOR flow-charting software – complimentary software that enables users to write programs without worrying about syntax – providing a hands-on component without the need to learn a whole programming language. Includes new “What and Why” sections that discuss what would happen if the program were run, or something were changed. Provides new “Making It Work” boxed features throughout, discussing how to implement concepts in an actual high-level language. Updates “Focus on Problem Solving” sections. A useful basic reference for programmers.
