I found this book to be very useful as a starting point. It was lively and fun to read but gave good working examples for Borland Pascal 6 and 7.
All in all a good buy.

A demanding text, but far more thorough than most. 9 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM
I learnt my Pascal programming skills by dutifully working through the chapters in my spare time. I haven't seen a better book for beginners - it is thorough but humorous. Many examples use numbers and mathematics, and a reader must be prepared to think about the material being presented. It does not give masses of code for you to copy and try out, but tries to develop an understanding of the Pascal language.

The best introductory Pascal Text I've come across 11 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM
I used this book to teach myself the basics of Pascal before taking it as a college class. It had been recommended by programmer friends I'd known going back several years. I was delighted to find it was also used as the text for the programming class I took. Probably one of the best things the professor did was choose this text. It's not an easy book, it requires you to work *and* think about what you're learning, but it has served me well. I am not a professional programmer, tho I have worked among them, and the basic programming skills I learned from Oh! Pascal helped me speak their 'language' and understand what sort of work they were doing, and enabled me to 'translate' computerese to my other coworkers, that the programmers often didn't have the time (or inclination) to do. Again, worth the effort the book expects of it's user, not simply to learn to program pascal, but to learn to think, and understand the discipline of programming: two thumbs up.

Excellent teaching text 14 Jun. 2000
By Charles Farnum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM
I have used this course to teach hundreds of students. Most have found it very helpful. As a professor, I found it to be a great tool. The book is intended for people who are going to become computer science majors, but has a sense of humor (unlike many "major-oriented" books). I would guess that reviews with fewer than three stars come from disgruntled students. (Not one of mine, of course :-)).

A great way to learn Pascal 6 Dec. 2000
By Miguel Farah Fugate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is great in what it does: teach you the Pascal programming language.
The authors explain everything clearly and in a friendly language - it's actually FUN to read each chapter. The order in which all the concepts are introduced is just plain perfect.
I think this is the BEST Pascal-learning book ever written.
Great Book, Great Language 13 Feb. 2011
By HH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the best programming book ever! Doug Cooper does a terrific job explaining the language and its nuances in a clear and understandable style. I have used it as an introductory to advanced programming text at the high school level. It's too bad that the language isn't as popular as it was back in the '80's.
