I downgraded my rating after reaching chapter 11. It only gets worse after chapter five. Much, much worse. Good luck trying to figure out which referenced materials still exist and which don't.
So more on the book: it covers seemingly as wide range of topics as one can imagine (or not) using at any workplace, from installing the IDE and writing its plug-ins (modules) to using WebServices and JavaFX UI development.
And the material is covered very nicely by David and Rhawi. The book is easy to follow and repeat exercises. The book has plenty if high-res images and is so well structured it makes a come back very easy (I needed a few re-visits to accomplish a task or two). What I liked the most was working with the RESTfull services (not only fun, but it delivers a great automation examples). Testing and profiling was a great skill to learn, a very important aspect, too, not just fun. Version control was very useful and the authors covered a lot of ground and many providers (I only expected Git covered). The enterprise Java was a tad more difficult to grasp, but again having such great teachers it is not intimidating at all.
In short, my verdict is 5 out 5. It is a great book especially for students and those who depart from other IDEs. I must say I liked NetBeans very much, even though I clocked more hours using the Visual Studio and Eclipse.
