No prior programming experience is necessary, but familiarity with doing common tasks using Microsoft Windows is expected.

The course can also be completed using Visual Basic Professional Edition 2010).REVIEWS:"Have your kids expressed interest in computers? Most children have, and will continue to do so, because we are in a technological world. There aren't many programming courses on the market today that cater to teaching children about computer programming. Fortunately, BibleByte Books & Computer Science For Kids offer two different "parent-friendly" middle school and high school computer programming curriculums for Microsoft Small Basic, Visual Basic Express, Visual C# Express, and Oracle-Sun Java. With no previous programming experience, I found that their Computer Programming Tutorials made computer programming both fun and easy to learn. Their customer service was also very eager to answer any questions that I might have. This combination of curriculum and customer service makes their tutorials attractive to both the Homeschool parent and their beginning student programmer." - Homeschool.com 2011 Seal of Approval Product Review"Third Day Games would be thrilled if every child who played our video games would learn how to develop Bible-based Christian video games themselves. BibleByte Books produces a wonderful Computer Science For Kids Curriculum that we believe will help train up the next generation of Christian game developers. The games industry desperately needs talented game developers, who are also Christians, to help build the next generation of Bible-based Christian video games. Learning a computer programming language early in life will give your child a great head start in the wonderful field of computer programming and give them the opportunity to use their skills to further the Kingdom."- Bobby Wells, CEO, Third Day Games
