I have just finished reading this book, basically skimming the last 7 chapters (or days I should say). I gave quite a break in between, but when I went back to Day 14, I realized this is not going anywhere. I have worked on three programs on Animation and none worked. The whole code is given without any explanation. As one previous reviewer put it, that kind of code is already given when you run Visual J++. If there is no explanation, why need this book? I am totally puzzled. The Q&A at the end of each day is a big joke. I am really afraid of the programmers who would study this book and think that they are competent with J++ right away. I am immediately in search of another programming book. If anyone who would like my copy, please send me an email, and I will mail it to you if you send me the postage. IMHO, waste of time. Grap another book, please, if you are serious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Tutorial Style 13 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
As with many of the other Teach Yourself books, this one walks you through the steps it takes to create applets and applications with Visual J++. I tinkered with Java, but this book made sense of it all by tying everything together.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great beginner level book! 7 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I'm not sure what the other reviewer was looking for, but for a beginner-level book (which is the purpose of 21-day books), I thought this book was fantastic! I had zero experience using Visual J++ and within a couple of days got up to speed and was writing applets. What more can one ask for? As far as I'm concerned I got exactly what I wanted: a book that got me up and running without a lot of fluff. Now when I'm a little more comfortable with the basics that this book presents, I'll move on to a more advanced book. Like I said. Exactly what I would expect from a 21-day book.

1.0 out of 5 stars This book is awful 7 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Unlike the previous reviewer, I didn't even get as far as chapter 3, I gave up after chapter 1.
Let's start with Appendix A "Installing Visual J++". Out of 9 pages the first 5 deal with Studio 6 and Internet Explorer 4, half a page about VJ6++ and the rest about MSDN. It covers none of the options in detail.
As a book for beginners, I feel that there should be a tour of the Screen. Instead you are left floundering to work out where you should actually be.
Also when the first example shows the HTML code listing in the book, which you cannot find on the screen and only but luck and much clicking is succesful, then enough is enough
I certainly do not reccomend this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worse book I have ever read. 8 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
After reading the first 3 chapter of the book, I could no longer continue because this book contain too much garbage. I found myself skipping a lot of pages. For example, there will be pages of source code in the book that is an exact replicate of what you will find when you use Visual J++ wizard to automatically create a project for you. The source code was listed with no explanation and no apparent reason. These is another situation where you will find 2-3 pages teaching you how to use WS_FTP software to uploading file to Web Server. The worse is screen shot for WS_FTP were also printed with totally unrelated file selected as an example ready for upload. The author spent too little time on helping the reader to create sample program and the sample programs are way to simple with no business application experience. I would like to suggest the author to follow the same format use by the author Davis Chapmen in "Teach yourself Visual C++ in 21 days" which is the best book I have ever read.
