Overview


Discover the key principles necessary to develop structured program logic with Farrell's PROGRAMMING LOGIC AND DESIGN, INTRODUCTORY, 7E. This popular introductory book takes a unique, language-independent approach to programming with a clear, concise approach that eliminates highly technical jargon while emphasizing universal programming concepts and encouraging a strong programming style and logical thinking. Clear revised explanations utilize flowcharts, pseudocode, and diagrams to ensure even readers with no prior programming experience fully understand modern programming and design concepts. Farrell's proven learning features help students gain a better understanding of the scope of programming today while common business examples help illustrate key points. Readers can use this proven book alone or paired with a language-specific companion text that emphasizes C++, Java or Visual Basic.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"She (Joyce Farrell) nailed it! The book is very easy to read, great examples, and the video addition is fantastic. The logic is everything I am looking for in teaching a course like this that leads to additional programming courses. I hope she doesn't CHANGE a thing. I would be sick if she did. I did not like the 5th edition at all. My students understood the concepts and with one chapter shorter, I was able to go slower and really teach the concepts with phenomenal understanding by all. Tell Joyce, thank you for an outstanding book."
