Spraul, V. Anton

The real challenge of programming isn't learning a language's syntax-it's learning to creatively solve problems so you can build something great. In this one-of-a-kind text, author V. Anton Spraul breaks down the ways that programmers solve problems and teaches you what other introductory books often ignore- how to Think Like a Programmer. Each chapter tackles a single programming concept, like classes, pointers, and recursion, and open-ended exercises throughout challenge you to apply your knowledge.

You'll also learn how to-
-Split problems into discrete components to make them easier to solve
-Make the most of code reuse with functions, classes, and libraries
-Pick the perfect data structure for a particular job
-Master more advanced programming tools like recursion and dynamic memory
-Organize your thoughts and develop strategies to tackle particular types of problems

Although the book's examples are written in C++, the creative problem-solving concepts they illustrate go beyond any particular language; in fact, they often reach outside the realm of computer science. As the most skillful programmers know, writing great code is a creative art-and the first step in creating your masterpiece is learning to Think Like a Programmer.
