Not particularly impressed... 31 Mar 2000
By Antigen - Published on Amazon.com
This book is described as 'Visual J++ starter kit'. As such I would expect that it would take a beginning user, such as I was, through the basics of the language step by step, and get the reader up to speed and confident with using the product.
I read maybe 200 pages before I gave up, not because it was difficult going, but more because I had not really begun to do anything serious aside from having a full description of lots of the features of the environment.
In my opinion, the best way to interest a reader in the topic is to throw him into the deep end (with simple tasks) and instil some feeling of confidence and accomplishment at achieving the small goals presented in this way. Reading 200 pages and still not really achieving anything is frustrating for the reader who is dying to dive in.
Instead, try the next book I tried, a Microsoft book 'Learn Microsoft Visual J++ 6.0 Now' by Microsoft Press. Straight away I was in there creating all manner of things. No fooling around.
Believe me, I understood more about the IDE after using it for an hour than I did by reading about it.
I gave the book 3 stars because it still has some good information but it's hardly something I would call a starter kit....
