Easy Programming: Commodore 16

This book is aimed squarely at the young first-time user and assumes no prior knowledge. It tries to be friendly, lucid and humorous - but the cartoons won't have you in stitches.

You're lead firmly by the hand through setting up the computer and getting to know the keyboard, to writing your first program. Then it's onto binary and memory locations and more complex topics. Throughout, you're given projects to tackle, with answers given at the end of each chapter. The book emphasises structured programming methods and debugging techniques which should provide a firm foundation for more advanced programming.
