Cambridge International AS and A Level Computer Science Coursebook delivers an accessible guide to theoretical and practical skills in Computer Science, with a clear progression of tasks that help to consolidate and develop knowledge. Cambridge International AS and A Level Computer Science Coursebook offers students detailed descriptions of the concepts, reinforced with examples that outline complex subject matter in a clear way. Alongside fundamental definitions, higher level programming skills are developed through the explanation of processes and consolidated by practical exam-type questions for students to attempt.
Examples of three different programming languages throughout allowing students to use the resource with their preferred programming language.
The coursebook is structured into units to allow AS and A Level students to progress according to the assessment papers.
Designed using a visual approach, outlining the concepts, the text helps students to understand the processes and structures of computer science
