The first edition of C Programming: A Modern Approach was popular with students and faculty alike because of its clarity and comprehensiveness as well as its trademark Q&A sections.
As the SASÂ© programming language continues to evolve, this guide follows suit with timely coverage of the combination statistical package, database management system, and high-level programming language. Using current examples from business, medicine, education, and psychology, Applied Statistics and the SAS Programming Language is an invaluable resource for applied researchers, giving them the capacity to perform statistical analyses with SAS without wading through pages of technical documentation. Includes the necessary SAS statements to run programs for most of the commonly used statistics, explanations of the computer output, interpretations of results, and examples of how to construct tables and write up results for reports and journal articles. Illustrated with SAS Graphâ¢ output. Provides readers with ample models for developing programming skills. For anyone interested in learningÂ more about applied statistics and the SAS programming language.
The second edition adds new language features and end-of-chapter GUI sections that include animation. New chapters include an introduction to the Java Collections Framework and an in-depth treatment of recursion. Two new supplementary chapters on the bookâs companion website describe the JavaFX GUI platform.
Before diving into object-oriented programming (OOP) in Chapter 6, the second edition includes a âmini-chapterâ that describes how to write multiple-method programs in a non-OOP environment. Those who want to continue this theme can follow an optional âlate objectsâ approach by reading two chapters on the bookâs website before returning to OOP in Chapter 6. Some key features include:
â¢A conversational, easy-to-follow writing style.
â¢Simple GUI programming early, in an optional standalone graphics track.
â¢Well-identified alternatives for altering the book's sequence to fit individual needs.
â¢Well-developed projects in six different academic disciplines, with a handy summary.
â¢Detailed customizable PowerPointTM lecture slides, with icon-keyed hidden notes.
I have used the Dean and Dean book in my Introduction to Java Programming class for the past year. This is an excellent text and I am very happy with it. It is the only text that I have ever used that always gets positive comments from students on my class evaluations even though there is no question asked about the text. The chapters are well thought out and the coverage is complete. The progression from topic-to-topic is masterful, and the writing is exceptionally clear and at the perfect level for an introductory Java class.

Architectural programming is a team effort that requires close cooperation between architects and their clients. Problem Seeking, Fifth Edition lays out a five-step procedure that teams can follow when programming any building or series of buildings, from a small house to a hospital complex. This simple yet comprehensive process encompasses the entire range of factors that influence the design of buildings.
This Fifth Edition of the only programming guide appropriate for both architect and client features new information related to BIM, integrated practice, and sustainable design when programming. Supplemented with more than 120 illustrations and diagrams updated for this edition, this indispensable resource provides revised technical information and faster, easier access to explanations, examples, and tools, including:
Guidance on incorporating the latest technological tools when programming
A primer on discounted cash flow analysis and net present value analysis
Project statement examples organized by project phase and building type
Useful techniques for data management, functional relationship analysis, and more
Prelude to Programming is appropriate for Pre-Programming and Introductory Programming courses in community colleges, 4-year colleges, and universities. No prior computer or programming experience is necessary although readers are expected to be familiar with college entry-level mathematics.
Prelude to Programming provides beginning students with a language-independent framework for learning core programming concepts and effective design techniques. This approach gives students the foundation they need to understand the logic behind program design and to establish effective programming skills.
The Sixth Edition offers students a lively and accessible presentation as they learn core programming concepts â including data types, control structures, data files and arrays, and program design techniques such as top-down modular design and proper program documentation and style. Problem-solving skills are developed when students learn how to use basic programming tools and algorithms, which include data validation, defensive programming, calculating sums and averages, and searching and sorting lists.
