Product Description

Product Description

This eBook is designed to teach anyone how to program with Java. It is written with the beginner programmer in mind and is written in plain English. Lots of care was taken in order to ensure that the tutorials in this eBook were approached from the perspective of a brand new programmer who has never before learned how to program.

Here's what's covered in the Book:

- Basic concepts of any programming language
- All necessary "Core Java" concepts and tutorials to get your started
- Example programs with explanations of the code
- How to setup a Database and link it to your code
- 5 Tips to becoming the best programmer you can be
- Practice Assignments with full solutions (both in code and via video)
- Tests with answers to keep you on your game
- Links to audio podcasts that complement the content

This eBook was written by a programmer who has been in the programming world since he was about 10 years old. Programming is a passion for the author, and he also has a gift for teaching. This gift of teaching was something that the author ignored until he decided to start working on this book. Those who had read the content have said the following:

"Out of all Java tutorials I have come across, this one is the best, the author speaks to you like he is right next to you and understands you."

"This is AWESOME!!! You have NO idea how many Java books and materials I have downloaded and bought in my bid to learn the language. I have NEVER been able to make it through 3 chapters! I haven't found material that laid out the concepts in plain simple English. I think i just found the RIGHT tutorials! Great writing style."

"I just want to say thank you for providing these tutorials! I always had a bit of trouble understanding certain things in programming. My professors never really explained in detail the things you have covered or if they did, they didn’t explain it in a way that was easy to understand. As you mentioned, the 'scary' parts such as classes and methods is what always held me back with developing software. Not anymore. Thanks!"

"Thanks so much for these short concept tutorials! I’m definitely not a beginner because I learned Java in school 2 years ago, but since then, I haven’t coded at all. I’m just getting ready to go back to school now, and I’m so glad you refreshed me on some of the Java basics I had forgotten. So great tutorials, thank you! I would definitely recommend them even to people who aren’t coding beginners."

1.0 out of 5 stars What a piece of crap 5 July 2013
By Charles Alfred Walters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Don't buy this piece of crap even for $1.00.
I bought this PDF for $14.00 hoping to actually learn Java, but what a joke.
Go to Y O U - T U B E its FREE. You will get a much better learning experience from the hundreds of videos at the click of a mouse.
I did have another review written for this PDF book, but it was taken down because I gave out better resources to use to learn Java.
The person who wrote this eBook couldn't explain his way out of a paper bag.
Look up these 3 sources at the site I referenced above.

2.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read but not easy to learn 27 Aug 2013
By Doug - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Despite my title of "Casual Reader" which I can't figure out how to change, I was in a hurry to learn Java. I have some limited non-object oriented programming background but have not programmed in Java or anything like it before.

My biggest complaint is that the exercises require a lot of knowledge that doesn't seem to be presented in the text. Fortunately he goes through the solutions in the video links, but uses a lot of concepts in his solutions that were not covered in the corresponding chapters in the book.

I used the kindle version of the book on my kindle, but also used the kindle reader on my computer to get the links to the exercises.

One thing I wish the author would have included is a more complete overview of the various files in a project. I'm halfway through the book and still don't really understand the difference between a project, a workspace, and what the various files in the project do and how they interact with one another. I also don't really understand the Spring studio after closing a project and trying to re-open it.

I also wish he would have included more basic projects from scratch as assignments, rather than have us fill in the blanks of more complex projects he already started. I think this would make it much easier to understand the fundamentals.

On the plus side, The author's writing style is easy to read and very casual.

Also, the price was very reasonable ($5 for the Kindle version when I bought it) and at this price I really can't complain about wasting money. I didn't feel compelled to buy his online subscription and in fact wasn't even aware of his subscription service until I googled his name.

I'm surprised by the number of rave reviews and question whether the reviewers actually bought the book and used it to learn Java. Many of them seem to admire his entreprenurial skills, whereas I am commenting on the quality of the book. Only a subset of them seem to be Amazon verified purchases (as I am).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but not 12 Aug 2013
By ebooklearner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's a really good text. The author really challenges you with the examples which are way too hard for a beginner but allows the user to follow along with youtube tutorials. The kindle format however doesn't allow copying of the code blocks which makes it almost worthless unless you really love to type. If the author included a link to the code blocks instead of recommending the user copy and paste.
Also the directions are explicitly for windows with no thought of usage on a mac. The recommended IDE is eclipse based so it doesn't really matter, just minor differences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Learning Material! 11 Aug 2013
By Don - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I picked this book up after I listened to Trevor's interviews on Entrepreneur On Fire and Smart Passive Income. He definitely has a vast knowledge base of this material and I can tell that this book is only the tip of the iceberg. He makes the material easy and fun to understand and I really feel that beginners such as myself or experienced programmers can learn a lot from How to Program with Java. I certainly recommend to all!
