Description

This course is part of the Microsoft Professional Program in Entry-Level Software Development.Understanding how a computer thinks is one of the first steps to becoming an excellent computer programmer. A foundation in logic is crucial in developing this understanding. Mastering logic is more than learning a set of rules. It involves learning how to break problems into smaller chunks^ figuring out how repeatable processes can save time and improve quality^ and understanding how to organize problems into the right size. In this course^ you ll learn how to do all those things and use computers to make them easier. After all^ logical tasks are what computers are best at doing! This is not a programming course^ but it will teach you how to approach critical thinking as both a lifestyle and an aide to better programming and testing.
