> I'm learning Python, and at the same time, creating an
> online course in the language for a local school district.
> I would welcome recommendations on a textbook:
First you need to tell us a it more:
What if any programming/computer skills do the students
> The two I am considering are:
> 1)Learning Python in 24 hours
Aimed at beginners with litle or no previous experience.
Good for an intro to GUI programming (and Mayan calanders!)
> 2)Learning Python
Only really suitable if they have a programming
background already. Or if you are ready/able to do
a lot of additional work filling in the gaps.
I could suggest my book but I've done enough self
promotion recently :-) Both of the above are good
intros they just serve different audiences. Since
I don't know what the other 4 books you have are
I'll just add the following to your list:
Core Python - Wesley Chun
Quick Python - ??? Manning Press
I've browsed both and they look good and have had
good reader reviews.
