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 books main goal is to introduce universal programming concepts while enforcing good style and logical thinking along the way. Designed for readers with little or 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 fifth edition has been updated to reflect the current state of the industry and the learning needs of todays beginning programmers. Finally, in the successful tradition of previous editions, it is not language specific, so the logic learned in this book can be applied to any programming language.
