  • A strong emphasis on test-driven development encourages you to consider outcomes as you write programming code so you design better, more usable programs
  • Helpful "Testing Track" introduces techniques and tools step by step, ensuring that you master one before moving on to the next
  • New teaching and learning tools in WileyPLUS--including a unique assignment checker that enables you to test your programming problems online before you submit them for a grade
