Don't be fooled. It's way more powerful than BASIC
The first thing to establish is you must know all the material from the Fundamentals class before taking this one.
Adding on those Fundamentals, we now can expose the entire Pick/BASIC language in 10 1-hour sessions.
Following the model laid out in "Pick/BASIC: A Programmer's Guide" by Jonathan E. Sisk, we take even a novice programmer through the instruction set, using practical examples and demonstrating more subtle issues like technique along the way.
We take that new knowledge and put it to test by studying the code on your own machine. Some students even bring a pending programming task from their in-box to class and we work on it together. What better time to get help with your homework?
