Narrated well, poor audio learning

In my opinion, you should not need to refer to a physical work document in order for an audio learning material to make sense. This fails to provide the listener with a mobile learning opportunity. A good story and lesson if you are able to cross reference the provided material, but lacking if you’d like to learn on the go such as myself. It is narrated well and has a decent story, I do not however, want to listen to you simply read off lines of code.

Actually great

The thing I loved best about python for fledglings were the coding models utilized. A depiction of the assignments are sketched out, at that point each progression of the code is appeared and explained.The last arranged code is then united toward the conclusion to enable you to see everything together.

Great book for beginner programmer

Good book to read for complete beginners, at the middle realized that by now I know how to read codes and write simple stuff. Would be great if the answers for the exercises could be included in the book too as I traveled to the country without internet and couldn’t verify if my results are correct! Other then that must have book if you are starting learning Python.

Absolute beginners guide to learn python

This is a perfect book for everyone. As you can see, there are a lot of different things that you are going to be able to do when you decide to work with the python coding language. A lot of examples were used to illustrate points being discussed e.g data types, python programming syntax, variables and operators etc. Brief introduction to basic concepts in Python. Goes deep into advertising use of the language. Really, just a preview to the larger book. Not enough to become comfortable with the language or programming.

I LOVE THIS BOOK

This is a great book to introduce a beginner to python, it has tons of examples that were way easier to follow than some of the other books I've looked at.I learned what to look for in the code and the basic structure of modules so advancing beyond what this book covers with just internet sources was not to difficult.
