This student-friendly textbook encourages the development of programming skills through active practice by focusing on exercises that support hands-on learning. The Python Workbook provides a compendium of 186 exercises, spanning a variety of academic disciplines and everyday situations. Solutions to selected exercises are also provided, supported by brief annotations that explain the technique used to solve the problem, or highlight a specific point of Python syntax.This enhanced new edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded with additional exercises, along with concise introductions that outline the core concepts needed to solve them. The exercises and solutions require no prior background knowledge, beyond the material covered in a typical introductory Python programming course.Features: uses an accessible writing style and easy-to-follow structure; includes a mixture of classic exercises from the fields of computer science and mathematics, along with exercises that connect to other academic disciplines; presents the solutions to approximately half of the exercises; provides annotations alongside the solutions, which explain the approach taken to solve the problem and relevant aspects of Python syntax; offers a variety of exercises of different lengths and difficulties; contains exercises that encourage the development of programming skills using if statements, loops, basic functions, lists, dictionaries, files, and recursive functions.Undergraduate students enrolled in their first programming course and wishing to enhance their programming abilities will find the exercises and solutions provided in this book to be ideal for their needs.
Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:
⭐This book is absolutely amazing! I’m a maths graduate and have dabbled in coding before, namely C++ and MATLAB so I already had some knowledge of core programming concepts.But I wanted to learn Python for career prospects, and in a structured way with exercises to solve – this book is just that. It is split into different sections such as ‘Decisions’, where concepts are introduced in enough detail for you to get on with the exercises at the end of the section. It’s in enough detail for the book to be self complete, not too detailed that you get lazy and don’t google some small things to perform the exercises.The exercises build up your knowledge slowly, with easy ones first and then they slowly get harder to challenge you – and they also show you the applications that coding has in many different disciplines. With maths, learning concepts and doing exercises / solving problems is the best way to learn, and I’ve found the same way to be true for programming. 10/10 would recommend – perfect for an undergrad student.
⭐This is a great book for learning to write python programs, doing the exercises is the key to learning to code, other books just give information about the structure and specific topics but dont have any exercises for you to practice the different topics. This book is a great addition to other python learning books.
⭐Such a great book for those wishing to learn programming by doing
⭐Semplice ma molto efficace
