Here are the books that we will be using in this course. In the first half of the semester we will use VisualWorks Application Developer's Guide. Note that Application Developer's Guide is included with VisualWorks Smalltalk. So if you install VisualWorks Smalltalk there is no need to download a separate copy of the Application Developer's Guide.

In the second half of the semester we will use Object-Oriented Design Heuristics.

The Smalltalk Best Practice Patterns book by Beck contains a lot of good advice for developing good Smalltalk code. Once you understand the material in this book you will produce better code in any langauge. The book will be a bit difficult to read early in the semester, but it is worth the effort.

If you are interested in other Smalltalk texts here is a list of free online Smalltalk books.
