Deitel Textbook Sets The Bar!

There are two Alberta Education authorized resources for the new Computer Science curriculum: the Deitel text and the Blue Pelican resources.

The reading level of the Deitel text is academic and, for all sorts of historical reasons, most CTS courses have not been treated academically. The Blue Pelican resources service the needs of CTS teachers in Alberta who, within a given academic year, teach courses in a variety of different disciplines. ...
