The book covers a lot. In chapter after every topic you get to do small exercises. At the end of every chapter there are answers for the small exercises. Also at the end of every chapter you get big questions which are good because they cover everything Ive learned up to that point.
The book covers pit falls, things that you should never do and why they are bad.
Great book for beginners!

Plus, his cover artwork is superb. Could he possibly know his audience more?!
Mr. Savitch, if you are reading this, please write a book for Python!!!!!!!
What I didn't like was that a lot of the code had typos that would prevent it from working. For example a variable would change names. Also the code indenting was very bad in a lot of places, and rarely ever did all the tabs completely line up.
Also in a few places there were paragraphs that were almost exactly the same. It was as if they copied the paragraph to make some changes but didn't delete the old version of it.
