Summary: Zed Shaw has perfected the world's best system for learning Python. Following it, students will succeed-just like the hundreds of thousands of beginners Zed has taught to date! InLearn Python 3 the Hard Way, students will learn Python while working through 52 brilliantly crafted exercises. Read them. Type their code precisely. (No copying and pasting!) Fix mistakes. Watch the programs run. As they do, they'll learn how software works; what good programs look like; how to read, write, and think about code; and how to find and fix your mistakes using tricks professional programmers use. -- Provided by publisher.
