Discover today's most effective guide to developing object-oriented program logic in Farrell's AN OBJECT-ORIENTED APPROACH TO PROGRAMMING LOGIC AND DESIGN, 4E. This book takes a unique, language-independent approach to ensure readers develop a strong foundation in traditional programming principles and object-oriented concepts before learning the details of a specific programming language. The author presents object-oriented programming terminology without highly technical language, making the book understandable even for readers with no previous programming experience. Common business examples and carefully revised chapters clearly illustrate key points. A wealth of updated programming exercises in every chapter provide diverse practice opportunities, while new Video Lessons expand on key topics.
