Product Description

Visual Logic offers a simple, but powerful, software tool for mastering programming logic and design without delving into traditional high-level programming language syntax. The software uses flowcharts to explain essential programming concepts, including variables, input, assignment, output, conditions, loops, procedures, graphics, arrays, and files. Students learn to interpret and execute flowcharts with immediate, accurate feedback.

Editorial Reviews

Review
"Visual Logic takes the focus off syntax and moves it to problem analysis - where students really need help. They need a place to start, and Visual Logic gives them that place."

"Visual Logic improves the analytical skills of students designated as CIS/CS majors."

5Allows you to use visual logic to it's full capacity
By Amazon Customer
There is no book included with this purchase as mentioned by another review. It's just a cardboard envelope with a piece of paper in it. The piece of paper has a code on it. The card has instructions on it telling you to go to a website and fill out your personal information + the code on the paper. You then receive an e-mail with a file in it. This file in the e-mail is needed to unlock the full features and save capability of visual logic. You are also given instructions on how to download the visual logic software. In short, by buying this product, you are "buying" the ability to use visual logic to it's full capacity. In that regard, it worked perfectly for me. The software was easy to download, the instructions were easy to follow, and the software works as intended.

1Ah, caveat emptor!
By --d.w.
The software is not being revised; neither is the associated book (A Guide to Working With Visual Logic, 2008). Cengage bundles this product with wonderful textbooks which are constantly being revised.

The Visual Logic software is incapable of passing an Array argument By Value (a rather simple requirement of procedures). I found 20 typos/content errors in the 144-page book (and notified the authors last year). There is no online help, no undo-redo, no autosave, no date/time functions, and no easy way to clear the graphics window.

Thus, Visual Logic is excellent when used within restrictive constraints by savvy instructors (note: Cengage offered no place to post my errata).

5It's a simple access code. Nothing more.
By T. Biden
It's a simple access code. Nothing more. If you're looking for the access code and a book on how to use Visual Logic, buy that.
If you're not sure if Visual Logic is what you need, download the free demo from http://www.visuallogic.org/ and when you realize that you want to save your projects, then you buy the access code that unlocks that ability.

As for me, the access code works and that's all I needed.
