Description

For courses in Python programming.

A clear and student-friendly introduction to the fundamentals of Python

In Starting Out with Python®, 4th Edition, Tony Gaddis’ accessible coverage introduces students to the basics of programming in a high level language. Python, an easy-to-learn and increasingly popular object-oriented language, allows readers to become comfortable with the fundamentals of programming without the troublesome syntax that can be challenging for novices. With the knowledge acquired using Python, students gain confidence in their skills and learn to recognize the logic behind developing high-quality programs. Starting Out with Python discusses control structures, functions, arrays, and pointers before objects and classes. As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, focused explanations, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter. Updates to the 4th Edition include revised, improved problems throughout, and new Turtle Graphics sections that provide flexibility as assignable, optional material.

The general impression of the book:

Excellent book for the self-learner! Clear explanations and good examples. Plenty of exercises. Tip: Start working the end-of-chapter exercises while reading the chapter, making sure not to do the exercises that are ahead of your reading. You'll be able to figure out which ones to try.

Organization of the book:

Clear and logical organization. It could use a little more spiraling of topics in the exercises.

Negative aspects of the book:

I would have liked to be able to buy the solutions to half of the exercises, but that is not available. On the other hand, if you can make your Python programs work, you probably did them correctly! I didn't think the videos that accompanied the book were useful--there weren't enough of them and they are slow. But overall, I am very glad I bought this book.
