It’s often unclear how we are supposed to categorize our examples when we type them out, and I think labeling the unlabeled ones outside of the text. However, if one’s objective is to learn Python, it will be necessary to supplement this book with some specific Python tutorials, although the first few chapters will definitely help to establish context and understand the fundamental building blocks of the language.

Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python can serve as a stepping-stone to more advanced computer science courses, or as a basic grounding in computational problem solving for students in other disciplines. At that point, the book dives into the science element of computer science, including algorithmic complexity, probability theory, graphing and statistical analysis.

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!

Although it covers such traditional topics as computational complexity and simple algorithms, the book focuses on a wide range of topics not found in most introductory texts, including information visualization, simulations to model randomness, computational techniques to understand data, and statistical techniques that inform and misinform as well as two related but relatively advanced topics: This definitely worth the purchase.

This is some tough reading, but well worth it. Good college level overview. In conclusion, I can strongly recommend this book provided that one reads the title in full as a manual for budding computer scientists, as well as an introduction to the Python programming language. This is obviously one of the gutatg written technical books.
