A great start but not much more than that

I myself had already taken a week long course in programming before purchasing this book. I figured this would help me talk things the next step. All it really did was reiterate everything i already knew.

:(

Well I spent a couple hours reading it and once I got to the examples I couldn't understand any of it. I need to understand what it does and how it happens. Any good books like that?

    very informative and helpful!

    Gives people who want to learn programming a good understanding of what it is and how it works, although it may take a little re-reading once in a while. Very good in that it gives you basics and important information before or while you start programming and some example and guides you into which programming laguage you should use bases on what goal you're trying to accomplish. Don't just jump into it unless you already know your way around a computer 'stuff like file management and changing your operating sytems settings', if you don't I'd suggest picking up a simpler for Dummies book like one on Windows or computers in general I suppose.
