I was almost giving up on the languague as I had bought books and attended two introductry courses on Java, still things have not 'jelled properly', then by chance I came across this book, which changed everything for me. After finishing this book I will recommend 'JAVA OBJECTS by J. Baker', published by Wrox press. I read it before this but it was pitched a notch higher than this book. For those new Object Oriented Programing and Java, nothing currently in the market in my view beats Thomas Wu's book. If it were possible, I will rate this book 6 stars!, believe me it is that good.
This is NOT a code-intensive reference book, simply because it is not written as such. This IS however, a book which teaches the basics of Object Oriented Programming (and does it - in my opinion - very well), utilising Java for that purpose. It says so in the introduction and it says so in the title.
If you are looking for an intensive reference book on java code, don't buy this book. If you want to learn "hard-core" Java programming and fast, don't buy this book. But, if you are looking for an introduction to OOP as well as an intro to Java basics, buy this book. That is my opinion.
The book is clear easy to read and an invaluable tool to help you in Bsc computer Science + the book is set in such a way that an individual could easily learn object oriented programming on your own.
An invauluable, easy to read, user friendly book!
By the time you have read this book, you will have a great insight into how to program using Java as you will understand the OOP fundamentals. The communication skills of the author makes this book THAT GOOD. He speaks with a great degree of clarity - which some University lecturers badly lack. The book is perfectly broken into managable segments, reinforced with exercises and quizes. At the end of the book, you program a Class Roster System.Once you understand OOP principles from this book, you could go off to learn C++ - which is the "daddy" of programming languages or dive straight into Java head first.
I would recommend this book for the reader wanted to learn java, as you first have to understand object-orientation firstly. If you do not have any programming experience, I would recommend Greg Perry's Beginners Guide to Programming; so you can learn the principles (variables, loops, if-else etc).
