extremely perfect !  March 13, 2011

I purchased this used textbook from here because I wanted to learn programming and here is my advice '' if you are going to learn game programming with this series of books and you have no experience in programming this should be your first book.'' This is the perfect starting point for beginners. I had no previous coding experience and I found this book pretty easy to follow. I highly recommend it (Y)
