Developed from the model used successfully in the Naps and Nance full-year texts in Pascal, this book combines Lambert and Nance's Understanding Programming and Problem Solving with C++ and Lambert and Naps's Understanding Program Design and Data Structures with C++ into a single CS1/CS2 text. Hence, Introduction to Computer Science with C++ solves the problem of where to begin CS2 that can occur when C++ is the teaching language. It also saves students money -- they don't have to buy two separate texts. This full-year introduction to CS1/CS2 features a gradual approach that covers problem solving and algorithm development while giving students a solid grounding in objects and classes. Throughout the book, a highly structured approach to programming produces programs that are easy to read, debug, and modify. Examples are carefully developed using pseudocode, structure charts, and module specifications. Programming Problems and Projects at the end of each chapter feature numerous programming assignments. They reflect a variety of areas (business, math, etc.) and ask students to build on programs written for earlier chapters, and to practice their communication skills.
