Summary

With a clear writing style that is stripped of highly technical jargon, Programming Logic and Design, Introductory, 5E 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. Designed for readers with little to no programming language experience, it begins with basic general programming concepts and key concepts of structure. Coverage then progresses to the intricacies of decision-making, looping, array manipulation, methods, and finally a summary chapter that incorporates all of these principles in a discussion of control break programs. The newly revised 5th edition has been updated to reflect the current state of the industry and the learning needs of today's beginning programmers and includes a completely revised approach to methods as well as an increased emphasis on input and output as generic operations. Finally, in the successful tradition of previous editions, it is non-language specific so the logic learned in this book can be applied to any programming language.
