A core or supplementary text for one-semester, freshman/sophomore-level introductory courses taken by programming majors in Problem Solving for Programmers, Problem Solving for Applications, any Computer Language Course, or Introduction to Programming.
Revised to reflect changes in the programming industry – as well as user feedback – this widely adopted text emphasizes that problem solving is the same in all computer languages, regardless of syntax. Sprankle uses a generic, non-language-specific approach to present the tools and concepts required when using any programming language to develop computer applications. Designed for students with little or no computer experience –but useful to programmers at any level – the text provides step-by-step progression and consistent in-depth coverage of topics, with detailed explanations and many illustrations.
