About

Features

Strong emphasis on problem-solving throughout the book

  • Schneider introduces a problem-solving strategy early in the book and revisits it throughout; flow charts and pseudo code are also heavily used.
Focus on essential topics and programming concepts for the beginning student
  • Students learn basic programming skills using the Microsoft Visual Basic programming language as an example. (For instance, when discussing variables, Schneider initially presents just three data types, in order to keep students focused on learning to use variables.)
  • The placing of the discussion of Visual Basic’s sophisticated debugger in Appendix D allows the instructor flexibility in deciding when to cover this topic.
  • Appendix B provides a compact, step-by-step reference on how to carry out standard tasks in the Visual Basic and Windows environments.
Gradual introduction to object-oriented programming
  • Although students begin to use predefined classes early in the book, they do not begin to create classes until the very end.
  • Objects are given familiar names, rather than programming terminology, to keep them in context.
Extensive pedagogy includes examples, exercises, case studies, and projects
  • Includes over 130 different types of examples (with over 51 covering business-related applications) and 1300 exercises.
  • Carefully designed exercise sets at the end of each section.
  • Practice problems with solutions are specifically chosen to focus on potential trouble spots and provide a warm-up to the exercises.
  • The programming projects not only reflect the variety of ways that computers are used in the business community, but also present some games and general-interest topics. The large number and range of difficulty of the programming projects provide the flexibility to adapt the course to the interests and abilities of the students. Some programming projects in later chapters can be assigned as end-of-the-semester projects.
  • Each of the three case studies focuses on an important programming application. The problems are analyzed and the programs are developed with top-down charts and pseudocode. The programs can be downloaded from the companion website.

VideoNotes
VideoNotes are step-by-step video tutorials specifically designed to enhance the programming concepts presented in Schneider, Introduction to Programming Using Visual Basic 2012, 9e. Students can view the entire problem-solving process outside of the classroom—when they need help the most. VideoNotes are available with the purchase of a new copy of select titles. Go to www.pearsonhighered.com/videonotes for a brief VideoNotes demo.
