This textbook could be way better. The only good thing is the practice in the book can help you understand the theory and practice problems. The biggest issue is the errors in the code examples . Typos are frequent in the book. It can be a hot mess at times. If you have a good understanding of Java already skip this book.
Very well written book, easy to follow. However, it does use something called an "@Override" in the examples, throughout the book without an explanation how to fix it, when it doesn't work. Eclipse seems to be finicky about using this, and my professor refuses to show me how to fix it, until later in the course.
This book does a good job of explaining the various concepts in Java programming. The examples of code are clear and well explained. The illustrations are rudimentary, but serve their function. There are some errors in the text, including in some of the exercises, which can occasionally make things confusing, but don't substantially detract from the book.
This is a good beginner text. It's written with enough interesting projects to make self-study from this book entertaining, and was detailed enough in theory to help cement ideas from lectures (if using this book as part of a class). I've worked with a number of entry-level Java textbooks, and this is, truly, one of my favorites.
Its good for those just starting out with Java. it covers all the basics. inadvertently entertaining....with nerd references. this book is not adequate for more advanced information as described by my college bound kd,. who took the class.
I'm really not a fan of this book. It doesn't always explain things in a way that a beginner can understand and the examples aren't always very good. I'm currently taking a java programming class in college that requires this book and our professor relies a lot on the book to teach us instead of explaining things clearly herself and often times I've had to take to the internet to find a solution to a program or problem.
This book will provide you with plenty of exercises you can try yourself but often times the answer to how to do them isn't made clear in the book. I've found websites and even phone apps that do a far better job of teaching Java. This book would probably be a bit more useful to some one with at least a little bit of a background in Java but I don't think it should be used as an "Introduction"
