It is an inclusive introduction to Computer Science that takes the pedagogical approach of "the right tool for the job at the right moment, " and focuses on application development. The approach is hands-on and problem-oriented, with practice problems and solutions appearing throughout the text. The text is imperative-first, but does not shy away from discussing objects early where appropriate. Discussions of user-defined classes and Object-Oriented Programming appear later in the text, when students have more background and concepts can be motivated. Chapters include an introduction to problem solving techniques and classical algorithms, problem-solving and programming and ways to apply core skills to application development. This edition also includes examples and practice problems provided within a greater variety of domains. An additional chapter of Case Studies is exclusive to the Wiley E-Text, providing students with real life applications using the concepts and tools covered in the chapters.--"@en ;
