Getting Started with Coding: Get Creative with Code!

I felt I needed to post a review on this book because it is a bit deceiving on Baker and Taylor’s site. We didn’t get the type of book we were looking for to aid the students in programming. This book is easy to understand, and it does talk about coding. My problem with it is that it is a book to support the computer program: MicroWorlds EX. It is more of a how-to manual for the software than a book about coding in general. You have to read the back of the book to find this out, and that is not posted on Baker and Taylor’s details page for the book. You would have to click the ‘addt’l content’ tab to find this out. They should have a more detailed description. Purchasing the book allows you a short trial period of the program for free or a discounted purchase price of Microworlds EX. The program gets good reviews and it might be worth checking out, but as far as a book about coding, go for another book.
