4.0 out of 5 stars Very good detail... 4 July 2007
By Shanice White - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is very good for someone who needs examples and explanations of sample code. I found this book very easy to read. I will use this book as a supplement in my class. It provides a different way of explaining material that would sometimes be confusing. I like that this book breaks down every line of code and explains it to the novice programmer.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good stand-alone way to learn 31 Mar. 2012
By R. Lamer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought this book would be a good way to start learning to program. Unfortunately, it's more confusing than helpful. The prose is very dense and rarely explains itself. The language/vocabulary of Java is breezed over very lightly, rather than being elaborated upon.

The biggest problem with this book is how it breaks down and introduces the practice code. I would expect to start with the main focus of a program and then build the methods/classes to serve that focus. The book consistently starts the reader out with a portion of code that is lower on the hierarchy (in a separate class), leaving the reader without any context. Imagine learning how cars work by getting lectures on tires and axles and exhaust before you learn about the engine. You may pick up little details, but the context is lost.
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant introduction to Java 21 Feb. 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great introduction to Java, easy to read, easy to understand both conceptually and the practical code examples in the book were well set out and explained.

I would recommend this book to others looking for a concise introduction to java.

The book was ok. It gave some pretty good examples, but it didn't really go into great detail to explain certain concepts. I think it could have done a much better job at explaining things and referencing key words in the glossary.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book 2 Aug. 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is excellent and great for anyone learning Java. When I picked this book up I had never programmed in Java before. This book really simplifies things and allowed me to pick up Java fairly quickly.
