I couldn't have passed my exams without this book!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Java the First Semester (Paperback)
For the last semster I've been struggling through my first programming course at University (and I'm not the only one!). With exams just a few weeks a way I wasn't feeling confident about passing and the Java texts I was recommended to read weren't much help. Then a friend of mine recommended this book to me - I owe him big time!
This book is so clear and easy to follow - I zipped through it in a week. I got it too late to help me with my coursework, but If I could do that again now I'd make a much better job of it. Most of the people in my class were creating applications with simple console interfaces, but I could now easily create a GUI interface after reading this text. Having never programmed before this is some feat!
Although I haven't got my results yet, I'm sure I did very well in my exams and its all thanx to this book. Not only does it cover technical issues but also topics that come up in exam questions like testing strategies and design methodologies.
If you've got a Java exam coming up soon and are in a panic GET THIS BOOK!
