    Thumbs up Beginning Programming in 24 Hours

    I recently finished up reading and working with SAMS Teach Yourself Beginning Programming in 24 Hours (Greg Perry). I've had great success with the book and CD-ROM that accompanied it and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone starting out in programming that can't decide on what language to start with.

    The book caters to almost any beginning audience, whether you're someone who has programmed before or someone who has never programming. It takes you through the history of programming, the differences in language, beginning good structure with your program writing with extensive chapters in planning your programs and the importance of planning them out before actually writing them.

    The book begins with taking you through Liberty BASIC with programs that progressively get harder as you learn more functions. You move from BASIC to Java to C/C++ to a small overview of web-based languages, such as HTML and JavaScript.

    Included on the CD are many examples, the LB Compiler as well as everything you need to start programming in Java.

    This resource was absolutely fantastic. You end the book feeling accomplished and ready to learn more. I think it's an excellent book for anyone looking to start out in programming.
