looking for a scheme book on cheme! the ebook!


I'm an adult learner who is starting his studies of computer science,
having recently discovered the joys of the subject & scheme as a
tool for that study.
   I am looking for a book that the name is <<Exploring Computer
Science with Scheme>>. Does anybody know the ebook web link?this is my
email: conquer@yahoo.com.cn. If you have this ebook ,please send
me a copy.

thanks in a advance

Hi,

I'm trying to learn Scheme as well.  I'm uncertain about why you asked for
this reference here when you could google it or ask your lecturer.  Aside
from that, I am unsure whether such a reference would do you much good
anyway.  I have a couple of Scheme references - as recommended in my
course - and to be honest, I have not found them especially helpful at all.
I can program in Delphi and there are a slew of great references around that
I can use readily.  But with Scheme, it seems you really need to get the
fundamentals of problem solving down very well before you can do much more
than tinker around.

For example, how would you go about calculating the factorial of a number
(the process) making sure to check for special cases like a zero or
negative?  If you can't answer this in your own language (mine is English)
then there is little point trying to write any code in Scheme.  I'm not
having a go at you, just sharing my own experience.

This site (and a few others) are my single best resource (aside from
frequent emails to my lecturer) on problem solving and then programming.  If
I can't do the first well I have no chance with the second.  Look at a
variety of posts (there are others in your position too) and see what people
ask and what sort of replies they receive.  I am learning a great deal just
from this alone.

Personally, trying to use Scheme has been humbling because it showed just
how poorly I understood the problem solving process.  I'm still trying my
best though ...

Good luck with your studies!

Mike

thank you very much!
i'll try my best!

You might also be interested in this book:
http://www.htdp.org/2003-09-26/Book/

Here is a little bit of information on this book from one of the four
authors http://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/matthias/research.html

Although it is true that he might be interested in both books, they
are very different.  The titles actually give this away --
Grillmeyer's book tries to cover quite a bit more of computer science
than just programming, whereas HTDP really is focused on How To Design
Programs.  As to the original poster's question about where to get
Grillmeyer's book in ebook form -- I notice that Amazon lists the
ebook (as well as the harcopy).

Mike, I've seen your postings here and I think you would benefit a lot from
reading "The Little Schemer".  Its focus is on developing *methodical* ways
to solve different kinds of problem using recursion, so that you get pretty
fast past "guess-work".  It's a light book, written in an unconventional
but captivating way (Q&A dialogues).

Thanks Emilio,

I have seen it (Google) and will be getting my grubby hands on a copy ASAP.

Now that I've been tinkering with the language a bit, I seem to be
reasonably OK (for my level) applying it.  I'm working at improving my
problem solving skills - Scheme appears to be a good fit in this regard.  I
have developed a few applications using DELPHI / INTERBASE and thought it
would be very useful to revisit that work to see how I would go using
Scheme.

If the book does what you say then that is precisely what I want :)

BTW - you don't know how much I appreciate the time that you (everyone) give
to people like me.  It is invaluable.

Kindest regards,

Mike
