Computers are used in every part of science from ecology to particle physics. This introduction to computer science continually reinforces those ties by using real-world science problems as examples. Anyone who has taken a high school science class will be able to follow along as the book introduces the basics of programming, then goes on to show readers how to work with databases, download data from the web automatically, build graphical interfaces, and most importantly, how to think like a professional programmer. Topics covered include: basic elements of programming from arithmetic to loops and if statements; using functions and modules to organize programs; using lists, sets, and dictionaries to organize data; designing algorithms systematically; debugging things when they go wrong; creating and querying databases; building graphical interfaces to make programs easier to use; and, object-oriented programming and programming patterns.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book for My Return to Programming 16. Dezember 2009
Von EW - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I had not programmed for 30 years and wanted to do a bit for a small project. After trying several Python books I found this one. I suspect that no one programming book will appeal to all, but this one was a great book to get me started again. Well-written. Good examples. Clear explanations.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book is the perfect foundation on which to build your Python programming skills 8. Februar 2010
Von Sara - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I entered a graduate program in computational linguistics with a linguistics background with no computer science or programming experience. All of my specialization courses use Python and, unfortunately, my university doesn't offer Python courses. Discovering that I wasn't all that wonderful at self-teaching myself to program, I resolved to take an introductory Java programming course offered by my university's computer science department. The course served as an excellent foundation and made this text, which I think is already very clear and accessible, that much easier to follow. My opinion is that this book would make an excellent text for an introductory course in Python programming or a wonderful resource to someone who knows a bit about programming but would like to understand Python. I had tried other Python books in the past, but found myself either lost or bored. The authors of this book know how to hold their audience's attention.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Could be better!! 22. April 2012
Von J. E. Palmer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I'm technical by nature and have programmed many years ago and wanted to get back into it. I got Learn to Program by Chris Pine which uses Ruby and this Practical Programming book which uses Python. I'm half way through both books. In comparison the Ruby book was smooth, easy to follow and few to none errors. I found the structure of the Ruby book excellent as each chapter built on the next. This book in contrast I'm finding much more of a chore. It does serve the purpose and will be a good intro to Python, BUT .... There a lot of errors in this book, small typos and such. Some exercises at the end of the chapter use methods from chapters that are further out and haven't been covered yet. Plenty of inaccurate page number references. Only the answers for the even exercises are found on the web, while the Ruby book gives all the answers. The Python book just doesn't seem as clear and easy to follow as the Ruby book. If you are just looking for a book to get into programming and not sure or care about language; I highly recommend the Ruby book over this one. If you need a Python intro I would say this book is okay, but leaves something to be desired and I feel the way the material is presented creates a slight unnecessary struggle. I haven't tried any other Python books to compare. And I will be continuing on and finishing this book even though I'm not raving about it. I'd say the python book reminds me of a mediocre college textbook with errors and a lack of clarity that might require an instructor to decipher. The Ruby book is smooth and easy to follow at home. Note this review is for the first edition, Publication Date: June 4, 2009 | ISBN-10: 1934356271 | ISBN-13: 978-1934356272 | Edition: 1 .. the same one selling here on Amazon.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Superior Introduction to Computer Science & Data Structures Using Python 14. Mai 2009
Von Ira Laefsky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As a result of superior pedagogy and a language that includes built in features like lists and dictionaries, and a standard library that comes with everything; this instructional book provides an introduction to Computer Science and Data Structures which excels using the modern programming language Python. This text is much more than a learn to program in "XXX" book, it gives a firm foundation for all subsequent courses in Computer Science and practical examples of how Data Structures are employed in real world problems involving graphics and databases. It also gives the necessary demonstrations of algorithms for Searching and Sorting, and a modern introduction to Object-Oriented programming.

In short, this volume provides an excellent foundation text in Computer Science, while incorporating instruction in the Python Language and giving practical examples of how to employ the Algorithms and Data Structures in real-world situations. It will give the student a strong basis for all further study in Computer Science and Programming.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Broad, yet effective 11. Januar 2011
Von Marcello Sias - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
While taking an online course (MIT OCW) that uses Python and had no book, I picked up this book as a reference for python specific syntax issues. It is a really great book (I got through the whole thing rather quickly), and I am sure it will stay near my workstation. The authors cover a broad range of topics in a rather short book. There are a ton of free ebooks on programming and Python, however, if you prefer to read a physical book: this is a great choice.
