4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good introduction for a total beginner 10 Feb 2009
By Marty d'Fried - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I think this is probably fine for someone that is just starting out with Java, and has no experience with something like C++. It has a lot of examples. Unfortunately, I've been learning on my own for a month, and am an experienced C++ programmer, and I found it to be cumbersome to browse due to all the various samples, illustrations, etc. Concepts are spread out over several pages, so I find I need to spend too much time looking for the sample or figure (numbered independently) that the text is referencing.

Other than that, the explanations seem pretty clear and detailed, which is probably a good thing for a beginner.

Also, the title on Amazon is incorrect... it's "Version", not "Vision".
5.0 out of 5 stars Review for Introduction to Java Programming Core Version 18 May 2012
By D. Sykes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because I was taking a beginning Java Programming class where the professor did not recommend a book to use in the class. I found the examples in the book easy to follow and read. They went right along with lectures in the class. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to take a beginning Java Programming class and needs a book to use as a reference.
