This study examines the problem solving strategies used by expert programmers. Past studies of the cognitive processes of expert programmers suggest the existence of plans that describe the problem solving strategies held by these programmers. To date such strategies, which are relevant to novice programmers, have not been explicitly incorporated into the curricula of introductory programming courses. In revisiting these earlier studies and confirming the existence of the strategies held by experts, this study argues for inclusion of explicit strategy instruction. .
