If you are new to Scheme, this book might be a great source for you. Exploring Computer Science with Scheme, by Oliver Grillmeyer (Springer)is an introductory programming book for people who want to learn more about scheme.

If you are new to Scheme, this book might be a great source for you. If you want to challenge yourself at more advanced level, I would recommend you to read Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (SICP) from MIT.

A presentation of the central and basic concepts, techniques, and tools of computer science, with the emphasis on presenting a problem-solving approach and on providing a survey of all of the most important topics covered in degree programmes. Such simple functions are easily tested individually, which greatly helps in producing programs that work correctly first time.

Exploring Computer Science with Scheme. Undergraduate Texts In Computer Science Series. Springer New York (2013). The aim of this textbook is to present the central and basic concepts, techniques, and tools of computer science. The emphasis is on presenting a problem-solving approach and on providing a survey of all of the most important topics covered in computer science degree programmes.

A presentation of the central and basic concepts, techniques, and tools of computer science, with the emphasis on presenting a problem-solving approach and on providing a survey of all of the most important topics covered in degree programmes. Scheme is used throughout as the programming language and the author stresses a functional programming approach to create simple functions so as to obtain the desired programming goal. Such simple functions are easily tested individually, which greatly helps in producing programs that work correctly first time. Throughout, the author aids to writing programs, and makes liberal use of boxes with "Mistakes to Avoid." Programming examples include: * abstracting a problem; * creating pseudo code as an intermediate solution; * top-down and bottom-up design; * building procedural and data abstractions; * writing progams in modules which are easily testable. Numerous exercises help readers test their understanding of the material and develop ideas in greater depth, making this an ideal first course for all students coming to computer science for the first time.

I think that this is a very good book, one of the best ones teaching programming through Scheme that I have found. Looking for this book somewhere in the archives of comp.lang.scheme I have seen that it had been criticized because it uses lists everywhere instead of vectors where it would be more efficient (like in binary search, for instance). I do not agree with that criticism: because the focus if this book is not on efficiency, because it is for beginners, and because it aims to cover a huge ground. This objective has been also met by choosing not to introduce vectors. I guess that this book is less known than it deserves due to the fact that no on-line version of it is available.

The first part of this book will give the basic programming `how to' knowledge: Common abstractions and basic program design.
The second part introduces Computer Science and will show you what others have been doing with the techniques explained in the first part. It will give a panoramic view of modern CS: databases, operating systems, artificial intelligence, compilers, `soft-computing', etc...
Only the chapter on compilers seems a bit confusing, everything else is clearly explained.
You won't need a good background in maths to follow it.

I was a former teaching assistant this past summer for a lower division computer science course at UC Berkeley. We used this book as our primary text. From several semesters of teaching introductory computer science courses I can say that this book has proven to be an indispensible item for me. Ranging from concise writing to thought provoking questions, it is an excellent introduction to future computer scientists. I recommend this to anyone.
