Textbook

We don’t have a textbook that we’ll be using in class. You’ll be able to get to most of the labs and lessons through Moodle.

I would recommend picking up a copy of Barron’s AP Computer Science: 7th Edition. It’s a great book for review.

 

Documents

You’ll get printed copies of these on the first day, but just in case you lose them and need another copy.
