With a clear writing style that is stripped of highly technical jargon, Programming Logic and Design, Introductory, Sixth Edition provides beginning programmers with a guide to developing structured program logic. The book's main goal is to introduce universal programming concepts, while enforcing good style and logical thinking along the way. The Sixth Edition will offer clearer explanations, reorganization to better reflect how programming languages are taught, increased emphasis on modularity, and two new appendices - Flowchart Symbols and Structures.
