Description

DESCRIPTION:

Cambridge International AS and A Level Computer Science Coursebook delivers an accessible guide to theoretical and practical skills in Computer Science, with a clear progression of tasks that help to consolidate and develop knowledge. Cambridge International AS and A Level Computer Science Coursebook offers students detailed descriptions of the concepts, reinforced with examples that outline complex subject matter in a clear way. Alongside fundamental definitions, higher level programming skills are developed through the explanation of processes and consolidated by practical exam-type questions for students to attempt.

FEATURES:

  • Examples of three different programming languages throughout allowing students to use the resource with their preferred programming language.
  • The coursebook is structured into units to allow AS and A Level students to progress according to the assessment papers.
  • Designed using a visual approach, outlining the concepts, the text helps students to understand the processes and structures of computer science
