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.
I think this could very well be the best discussion of OO/Event/GUI that I ever read. Not only did the author cover the material, She added new insight to a subject that has been written about for a long time. I will recommend this book to anyone who will listen because of this chapter. Dave Courtaway, DeVry - Pomona, CA
