My Son’s Review of “Everything You Need to Ace Computer Science and Coding in One Big Fat Notebook: The Complete Middle School Study Guide”
Both my big kids showed interest in this book right away. However, my son, who loves anything about computers, wanted to get started with it right away. He wanted to see if there were things he didn’t know so he could take his computer science skills to the next level!
In my Son’s Words
“What I liked about this book is that it is very intuitive. As long as you know at least some basic operation of a computer and basic math, you are ready to go. It teaches you a lot of things you need to know about computer science, engineering, and computer programming. The book is pretty solid for middle schoolers wanting to get started with coding. Plus high schoolers can use it too! If you have a middle schooler wanting to learn more about coding, this book is a great start!”
