The zyBooks Approach
Less text doesn’t mean less learning.
Provides interactive learning of programming foundations and Java. Emphasizes a solid understanding of memory. From the moment variables are introduced, the material shows via animations how variables exist and are updated in memory. The continued showing of memory helps clarify challenging topics like pass-by-copy/reference parameters, object creation, garbage collection, and more. Furthermore, the material includes emphasis on disciplined program development, including incremental development, modular development, and testing/debugging. This material is a re-ordering of the “Programming in Java” zyBook customized for the AP Computer Science curriculum and exam. The zyBook additionally includes dozens of problems for practicing AP exam questions.
