Want to learn how to solve coding problems easily and efficiently?
Time to learn about the pillars of good code and programming: Data structures and algorithms. In the Data Structures Essentials: Pseudocode with Python Examples zyBook, you will learn and master these basics in pseudocode and Python.
Research Proven Excellence
80% of surveyed students preferred zyBooks over regular textbooks.
Studies show that students learn 118% more with the minimal text model in only one lesson.
On average, zyBook users improved grades up to ⅔ and read 74% more than users of regular textbooks.
What is a zyBook?
In short, zyBooks are interactive, digital textbooks.
By incorporating available technology, zyBooks make learning fun, interactive and engaging – all while drastically reducing the time spent on learning theoretical concepts.
