5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Rocks!, 10 Nov 2012
This review is from: Java in Two Semesters (Paperback)
I bought this book during my first year in Uni, and used it through to year two when surprisingly my Java lecturer was the author of the book Dr. Aaron Kans. His approach to programming in java is spot on and I can now program skilfully. Word of advise try and do the self exercises as these will give you in-depth practice as they are designed to enforce the topics with practical examples. Must have for anyone who wants to learn to program in Java.

Christ, PS, if you don't do the exercises at the end of chapters in a textbook - but most especially in a programming book - you will never really learn the stuff. So much in any text seems so reasonable and 'obvious' when reading it . . . but it's only when we have to do an exercise on it do we truly see how much of it we've synthesized for ourself.
Every exercise in this book ought be done as a baseline. And better still to change a few of those exercises around to model some situation of particular to ourselves, as this will help us remember better the programming lessons learned.

Hi there,

Thanks for the great review. This the BEST Java book I have come across (after spending money on buying several bad ones) this made it easier to understand.

Is there another book you could recommend after this?

Ha! I was taught by the other author, Quentin Charatan (Some lectures that year were by Aaron too).

Let me tell you they are both superb teachers, and they have carried that skill across in this book.

I went from no programming knowledge whatsoever to a week later fully understanding the concepts of oop, datatypes, control structures, methods, functions. The basic building blocks of any high level language.
