Learning to Program in Python

Published 23rd June 2017.

Available in printed and digital formats.

This book is a straightforward guide to the Python programming language and programming techniques. It covers all of the practical programming skills that may be required up to GCSE level and for those at AS Level with limited exposure to Python. It is suitable for both experienced programmers, students or individuals with very little or no programming experience in other languages. 

It teaches basic syntax and programming techniques, and introduces three inbuilt Python modules:

  • Tkinter, used for building a graphical user interface, which is an option that some users may like to include in their project work. 
  • SQLite, which enables the creation and processing of a database from within a Python program. This provides an alternative to writing to a text file when data needs to be stored and retrieved.
  • pdb, Python’s debugging module, which can be used to help find elusive logic errors.

Questions and exercises are included in every chapter. Answers to these as well as over 120 Python programs for all the examples and exercises given in the book are provided to students and teachers in a free pack available to download on our website.

What people say...

Having looked at your A level textbooks, which are excellent, we would now want to have a look at the new GCSE textbooks and we will be recommending them to our new computer science students.

Alan Paupiah. Head of Computer Science, Aylward Academy

I have a copy of the existing AS level book and I love the structure and accessibility of it – well done.
