Not for beginners!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Python Pocket Reference (Pocket Reference (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
Perhaps I am mean giving this only 3 stars, after all the other reviewers are very positive.
I suppose it isn't what I needed.
Here's my scenario - I am using the excellent book -Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner - to teach myself Python. I have some programming experience in other languages but will be teaching Python at this level to a class of 15 year-olds next term. Now the book is great but it is tutorial in style, so it not quick and easy to look up things ... say all the methods associated with lists, or whatever ....
I can and do, of course, use the Python web site which is fine when I am on line.
What I wanted was a little book where I could quickly look up some basic Python stuff, with a couple of examples. Anyone got any ideas?
Now the pocket reference book is obviously for more advanced Python programmers who already know a lot but want a quick reference - hence the, no doubt, well deserved 4 or 5 stars.

Google search for "python 3 reference manual pdf", then download and print the manual. Or better still read it from a tablet.
