Python for Everyone (14 Edition)


Python for Everyone (14 Edition) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cay Horstmann's Python for Everyone provides readers with step-by-step guidance, a feature that is immensely helpful for building confidence and providing an outline for the task at hand. “Problem Solving” sections stress the importance of design and planning while “How To” guides help students with common programming tasks. Photographs present visual analogies that explain the nature and behavior of computer concepts. Step-by-step figures illustrate complex program operations, while syntax boxes and example tables present a variety of typical and special cases in a compact format. This book contains a substantial number of self-check questions at the end of each section. “Practice It” pointers suggest exercises to try after each section. Python for Everyone presents the essentials in digestible chunks, with separate notes that go deeper into good practices or language features when the reader is ready for the additional information. You will not find artificial over-simplifications that give an illusion of knowledge.

Book News Annotation:

Intended for beginning computer programming students, this book takes a visual approach to teaching the fundamentals of programming. No previous programming experience or skills are needed. Starting with the most basic syntax and coding, it takes students step by step through the skills and problem solving techniques needed to write proper code. Although it uses the Python computing language, the lessons and skills can be applied to other higher level programming languages as well. Each chapter covers increasingly complex topics and contains exercises and visual examples that are easy to follow. Chapters also contain examples of common errors, helpful programming tips, and special topics and facts that relate to the chapt‛s subject matter. Illustrations, margin notes, and analogies are sprinkled throughout to aid in the read‛s understanding of the material. Annotation ©2014 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
