  • A comprehensive book for a beginner

    By ilgaar
    It is a very fine book which covers almost everything related to computer programming. It can turn a novice with no idea or knowledge of the field into a geek with decent knowledge full of ideas. However, there are some spelling and programing syntax errors in the book; Some of the recommended programs, languages and software are obsolete or outdated; Some contents need to be revised and updated. Despite all the short comings, and although most topics aren't covered in depth , I recommend you to read this book if you want to begin computer programming professionally. It covers almost 99% of what you might need as a beginner.
