3.0 out of 5 stars A nice addition ot the main book... 26 Sep 2002
By Ronald J. Legere - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This manual is a nice addition to SICP, if you are trying to teach yourself. Some points are clarified, and there are some additional exersices. Unfortunatly, in this edition, the extended exercises were removed, and they were pretty cool (implementing object oriented programming,for example). Nevertheless, you can download the extended exercises from the book's web site, so all is not lost, but I was disapointed that they were not printed in the instructor's manual this time.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you're gonna work SICP, do it right. 23 Sep 2007
By Christopher Brown - Published on
Come on folks, we all know SICP is a classic and the instructor's manual fills in the gaps with additional discussion of key points. However, it's not a perfect substitute for a live instructor.
I'd suggest augmenting both with the videos of the original lectures, freely available from MIT, or the Berkeley lectures recently made available for streaming.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money. 6 Nov 2006
By Richard M. Osborne, PhD - Published on
Although I love the underlying book on which this booked is based, I hated this so-called instructor's manual. It simply seems like the authors wanted to make more money by writing a book that rests only on the name of the original. It is in NO way an instructor's manual. As I say above, don't waste your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you believe you are smart, read this book. 12 Dec 2001
By Lexin Shan - Published on
Wow~ Wonderful book! MIT is always MIT. You will learn a lot about scientific programming through reading this book. I agree some point of the previous reviewer. The book doesn't tell you lots of things about essential software developing. However, it trains your brain to stand in the later complex programming.
I started programming since 10, and I have 7 years of programming experience. I still found this book classic. The best book I ever met. If you don't believe me, believe MIT students. It's considered to be the best textbook among them.
You will feel exciting reading the book! You will see how tiny you are in front of an expert.
