The first part of this book concentrates on the fundamentals of the language and takes students where they can write modestly sized programs using sequential files. Part two assumes competence in elementary COBOL and explains program design and other programming techniques which should be part of the professional programmer's repertoire. Part three extends the student's knowledge of the language by explaining some of the more advanced features of COBOL.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good at any level 10 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Works well as a introduction to programming or skipping a few chapters cross-training developers will be happy with the pace. Like the best programming books, this is a refreshingly short text but doesn't miss anything. When it comes down to it COBOL isn't a long or complex language and isn't well served by a long or complex book. This books aims well and hits it's mark cleanly. If you think K&R is best introduction to C ever written, this book is for you on COBOL.
