With this text, Shaffer and Platt provide an alternative presentation and organization of material for an introduction to programming in Turbo Pascal. Emphasizing subprograms in the beginning and the object-oriented paradigm later, this new approach introduces one repetitive control structure first, then slowly adds other structures. Students are motivated through the use of a chapter problem to demonstrate concepts, which is formalized towards the end of each chapter. This gives students substantial, yet understandable, examples of structures, presenting a more realistic picture of problem solving and program development. Abstraction, the underlying theme of the text, is demonstrated with control structures, data types, subprograms, and the object-oriented paradigm.
