How To Think Like A Computer Scientist: C++ Version

Buy

The goal of this book is to teach you to think like a computer scientist. 1 like the way computer scientists think because they combine some of the best fea tures of Mathematics, Engineering, and Natural Science. Like mathematicians, computer scientists use formal languages to denote ideas (specifically computa tions). Like engineers, they design things, assembling components into systems and evaluating tradeoffs among alternatives. Like scientists, they observe the behavior of complex systems, form hypotheses, and test predictions.

The single most important skill for a computer scientist is problem-solving. By that I mean the ability to formulate problems, think creatively about solu tions, and express a solution clearly and accurately. As it turns out. the process of learning to program is an excellent opportunity to practice problem-solving skills. That's why this chapter is called "The1 way of the program.''

Of course, the other goal of this book is to prepare you for the Computer Science AP Exam. We may not take the most direct approach to that] goal, though. For example, there are not many exercises in this book that are similar to the AP questions. On the other hand, if you understand the concepts in this book, along with the details of programming in С++, you will have all the tools you need to do well on the exam.
