This book, in a language-free context, helps students learn general programming topics (e.g. data types, control structures, files, arrays, subprograms), structured programming principles (e.g. top-down design, modular design, documentation and style), how to use basic tools and algorithms (e.g. data validation, defensive programming, searching and sorting), and about other programming paradigms (e.g. object-oriented, event-driven). It includes three additional chapters not found in "Precise Prelude to Programming" (chapters 7 - 9).
