But the overall arc of the book provides a solid course of study for those just getting started with computer programming and computational data analysis, two skills no scientist or engineer should be without.
However, that is the precise opposite of what I want to suggest – this is an excellent book, one that I would have dearly loved to have when I first started to learn the subject of computer science back in the s. Mar 01, Becky marked it as to-read Shelves: I bought Zelle’s book also and have used it for extra exercises and the occasional alternative explanation.
Data science is maybe taking it too far: It helped me get a better grasp of some of the key concepts from the 6. I chose to read and review this book purely based on the title rather than doing my normal level of research.
It is puthon and boook. Luckily Khan Academy has some courses. Mar 04, Neal rated it really liked it. Only 3 left in stock – order soon. Provide feedback about this page.
Jun 26, Adam Dodd rated it really liked it. Like on the chapters about probability, where my knowledge was laughably bad. Saaya rated it really liked it Aug 15, Learn more at Author Central. Zelle’s book is also a popular first year CS text, but obviously for a different audience. Return to Book Page.
Had I done my research more fully, I would have read this paragraph, which clearly outlines the purpose and content of the book: If you require a more leisurely pace, John Zelle’s Python Programming, an Introduction to Computer Science takes pages to cover what this book covers in pages, and then has a hohn chapter just touching on what this book covers more deeply in the remaining pages.
Professor Uohn current research is centered on the application of advanced computational techniques to medicine. No trivia or quizzes yet.

Kristin rated it really liked it Sep 16, This edition of the book is based on Python 2. He has also done research, published, and lectured in the areas of sports analytics, financial analytics, software defined radios, software engineering, mechanical theorem proving, and hardware verification.
The difference may sound quite subtle, and perhaps a bit negative. This book is written in a relatively dense fashion, but when read in conjunction with the MITx 6. Please try your request again later.
The chapter on computational complexity was downright fascinating. Very didactic and ideal for all audiences. I was interested in learning more about the Python language, partly because I use Jython on a regular basis Jython is an implementation of Pyhhon, written in Java.

Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python by John Guttag
That being sa Read this book for the Mitx course on edx. Open Preview See a Problem? It is a very good introduction to computer science and python programming. It covers a wide range of traditional topics such as computational complexity, basic data structures, Object-oriented programming and dynamic programming. This book introduces students with little or no prior programming experience to the art of computational problem solving using Python and various Python libraries, including PyLab.
In its entirety, the book should be considered pythln excellent introduction to computer science and programming – as mentioned previously, I’d have loved to have this book when I started out in information science guttqg 30 years ago.
