The Python Workbook Summary

The Python Workbook: A Brief Introduction with Exercises and Solutions by Ben Stephenson

While other textbooks devote their pages to explaining introductory programming concepts, The Python Workbook focuses exclusively on exercises, following the philosophy that computer programming is a skill best learned through experience and practice. Designed to support and encourage hands-on learning about programming, this student-friendly work contains 174 exercises, spanning a variety of academic disciplines and everyday situations. Solutions to selected exercises are also provided, supported by brief annotations that explain the technique used to solve the problem, or highlight specific points of Python syntax. No background knowledge is required to solve the exercises, beyond the material covered in a typical introductory Python programming course.
Undergraduate students undergoing their first programming course and wishing to enhance their programming abilities will find the exercises and solutions provided in this book to be ideal for their needs.
