Product Description


“Carrano uses a back-and-forth approach to teach a concept and reinforce it by covering it in more detail later. This is a good design that gives students time to digest a concept before introducing more complexity.” ― Douglas Twitchell, Illinois State University

“This is a novel pedagogical approach that will drive the evolution of textbook design strategy. The tone is easy and conversational, and the level of detail is appropriate. The author intuits probable questions generated by the reader and responds appropriately.” ― Ric Heishman, George Mason University

“Repeated reference to the Java documentation (API) is a strong point of this text.” ― Tim Margush, University of Akron

“I appreciate the hands-on examples in this book, especially the step-by-step description. The concept of “core method” is very impressive.” ― Jianchao Han, California State University, Dominguez Hills

“The examples strike a good balance between being short enough to be understood, while being long enough to illustrate the concept in question.” ― Paul Sivilotti, Ohio State University

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a total newcomer to Java, I chose this book as it was part of my University course's "recommended reading". I'm really impressed with it so far, and I'm 5 chapters in after about 3 weeks.

The layout is simple, and broken down into logical chapters, sections, and paragraphs. The examples, exercises, and topics are so clearly laid out, I really can't find any negative criticism for the book.

The nature of Java is such that, while you're getting to grips with the concepts of object-oriented programming, you need all the help you can get to make sure you're not swamped with information overload, and to make sure that all the commands and concepts are explained clearly and at the appropriate time to ensure success. I feel that this book delivers that help perfectly.
