Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python

Great straight forward technical book on computation and programming with short concise chapters and topics that get straight to the point. It is a rigorous but eminently readable introduction to computational problem solving. Jan 04, Tom Meyer rated it really liked it.

Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python by John Guttag

It is very well written and an absolute must-read if taking the courses. When could we ever buy a textbook for less than 10 bucks? Had I done my research more fully, I would have read this paragraph, which clearly outlines the purpose and content of the book: That is the true art of programming.


The material is rid of any redundancy so that a quick learning of the essential parts about computation was made possible. As in many MIT presentations, there’s not a lot of hand-holding — things move fast and you may have to supplement with other material to fill in leaps lython the exposition.

Having read most of it I’ve upped the review rating to 5 stars. Don’t have a Kindle? Students are introduced to Python and the basics of programming in the context of such computational concepts and techniques as exhaustive enumeration, bisection search, and efficient approximation abd. Sintaxis, semantics, algorithms and computational complexity are some of the topics you can expect to see in this book, and even though, at some point I had to spent quite a bit of time rereading to grasp some of the concepts, if you have the patience and time, is well worth it!

Thank you for your feedback. See all 18 reviews. Although the book is called an “Intro to Computation and Programming,” it contains computaation that is typically not covered in jogn intro courses i. If read while following the MITx lecture it’s handy but still complicated for an Introduction, because it’s full of computer science jargon that doesn’t explain anything to novice.

The book does not require knowledge of mathematics beyond high school algebra, but does assume that readers are comfortable with rigorous thinking and not intimidated by mathematical concepts. English Choose a computatioj for shopping. Good college level overview. Saaya rated it really liked it Aug 15, I bought this book to complement the edX Intro to Computer Science course. Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. Superb content, as one might expect from MIT. If you want to study Python, get compuhation another book, if you are an experienced Python and want to sharpen your computer science knowledge, get this book.

I wish the introduction of OOP were a little programmig for beginners. The chapter on computational complexity was downright fascinating.

The teaching style is fun and straightforward. Instead this books uses Python to teach you about computation and how to think and solve problems like a computer scientist. However, guttav are still many typos and other errors in the text and at least one code example that need correction.

It covers a wide range of traditional topics such as computational complexity, basic data structures, Object-oriented programming and dynamic programming.
