WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR COMPUTER PROGRAMMING CURRICULUM:
"Phil Conrod has a passion for writing tutorials and books aimed at beginner programmers and he’s done an excellent job of covering all the
fundamentals of Small Basic programming.- Vijaye Raji, Creator of Microsoft Small Basic
"I think the teaching resources are great. They work very well for a class and it is good teaching & guidance for students to do on their own. "
- Julie McMahon, Teacher, New Zealand
"The tutorials were really good to use. I have a very small class of 3 and I found them to be much better than a book."
- Steven A. Compton, Teacher, Nashville, TN
"I was looking for some Visual Basic Express ideas......these books appeared to be just what I needed......
I bought both Visual Basic books...great ideas and easy to read." - Andrew Zwelling, Math Teacher
"I like the Computer Science For Kids Textbooks. They are clearly written and easy to understand.
All in all, you folks have done a great job!"- Peter Eramo, Teacher, Poland, NY
"I like the tutorials. They were easy to follow using laymen's terms." - Carol Carmichael, Teacher, Easton, PA
"Recently I bought the Beginning Microsoft Small Basic for Homeschool 3 Pack Set for Ethan. For the first few days I couldn’t get him off the computer! I’m lucky enough to be able to just hand him the book and say, “There you are”, his eyes light up and my role as the ‘teacher’ is complete."
-Tracey, Homeschool Parent & Blogger, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia
"I highly recommend Philip Conrod's new "Small Basic Computer Adventures" book to both kids and adults!"
-David H. Ahl, Founder of Creative Computing
"There aren’t many programming courses on the market today that cater to teaching children about computer programming. Fortunately, BibleByte Books & Computer Science For Kids offer two different "parent-friendly" middle school and high school computer programming curriculums for Microsoft Small Basic, Visual Basic Express, Visual C# Express, and Oracle-Sun Java. With no previous programming experience, I found that their Computer Programming Tutorials made computer programming both fun and easy to learn. Their customer service was also very eager to answer any questions that I might have. This combination of curriculum and customer service makes their tutorials attractive to both the Homeschool parent and their beginning student programmer."
