The first few weeks of a programming course are crucial to the students' perception of the subject area; it is during this period that they learn the aesthetics of the discipline and are most receptive to new ideas. By using this book, students will quickly absorb a large number of useful, important, and sophisticated programming concepts. The book also presents a short, yet accurate overview of the programming terrain that they will cover again while learning PASCAL. This horizontal slice through the course material allows students to obtain an excellent perspective on the entire programming process.
