Default Leaning To Program with Alice [The Textbook] - 05-12-2010, 11:40 AM

Well the school year is almost over and my class has only probably learned half of what is in the Alice Textbook. I still want to learn more about Alice and become an active Alice user and forum user. Since computer science 3-4 will probably not teach Alice, I was wondering if there was a place where I could order the book online or something, so I can read it at home and learn more about Alice on my own. If someone could refer me somewhere, unless they don't sell Alice Textbooks to single users, :x, which would really suck.

Thank you for reading ^_^!

I am a returning College Student who is self-teaching Alice in preparation for returning to class this summer.

I am going to be taking a 3D Modelling course. And while they waved the pre-requisite class for the course of study, the instructor told me it would be a good idea for me to go through and learn the material.

So tonight I sat down with just the book and CDs.. and began a long journey. I am sure that I will be back with some questions over the next few weeks.

Order Alice from Amazon or Borders or Barnes and Noble. It is available to anyone, you don't have to be a school. Finding a college that offers Alice and visiting their bookstore might be a good way to find a used copy. I also frequent used book stores looking for copies.

Hi Luis,

You could try the "Alice 3 Cookbook" by Vanesa S. Olsen.

This book is designed primarily for teachers developing education plans and willing to exploit 3D environments using Alice 3. Alice users who want to improve their Alice programming skills will also find this book useful as it offers innovative 3D models in action.

Check it out here, let me know what you think.
