Readings for Learning Scheme

Scheme is a mostly functional programming language. What to read to learn Scheme depends on your previous experience in programming.

Readings for Beginning Programmers

There are a wealth of excellent books on this subject. At ISU we used the following in the Scheme version of Com S 227.

Other excellent texts are the following (listed in alphabetical order).

Readings for Non-beginners

Everyone who programs will enjoy the book by Abelson and Sussman. The Springer and Friedman book goes into more details about Scheme, and part 5 is the best introduction to continuations around.
