Great foundation for the beginner
on 21 September 2000
What a change... an actual book written for the complete beginner, that delivers what it promises. Starting a course in computing and having no experience of programming at all, I decided to get a head start, using this book. It has given me a very good basis for programming which is no longer a daunting task. It would have been a 5 star rating had the chapter on looping been more a little more thorough, providing more working examples, but in every other aspect and every other chapter (hour)... this book is THE starting place for beginners, and 5 star in every other respect. A great investment which teaches not only good practice but good program design...
