CIE AS & A Level Computer Science - Cambridge International AS and A Level Computer Science offers a complete set of resources to accompany the 9608 syllabus. This coursebook delivers an accessible guide to the theoretical and practical skills that are required by the course, with a clear progression of tasks that consolidate and develop knowledge. It offers students detailed descriptions of the concepts, reinforced with examples that outline complex subject matter in a clear way. Alongside fundamental definitions, higher level programming skills are developed through the explanation of processes and consolidated by practical exam-type questions for students to attempt.
Learning to Program in Python - This book is intended for individuals and students learning to program. You may already have done some programming in other languages, but not be familiar with Python. Novice programmers should work through the book sequentially, starting at Chapter 1. It will also be a useful reference book for students on a programming course or anyone working on a programming project. It teaches basic syntax and programming techniques, and introduces three inbuilt Python modules: "> Tkinter, used for building a graphical user interface, which is an option that some users may like to include in their project work. "> SQLite, which enables the creation and processing of a database from within a Python program. This provides an alternative to writing to a text file when data needs to be stored and retrieved "> .pdb, Python's debugging module, which can be used to help find elusive logic errors. Questions and exercises are included in every chapter. Answers to these as well as over 120 Python programs for all the examples and exercises given in the book may be downloaded from www.pgonline.co.uk. These programs enable users of the book to try out the in-text examples and check possible solutions to the exercises.
