Raves for Deitel Development Books and Training Courses!

I recently purchased The Java Multimedia Cyber Classroom. I found this multimedia disc to be the best investment I ever made. This interactive way of presenting Java is awesome...if you have anything like this for other programs, I want to purchase all of them.

Robert O’Meara

I’ve been working with Java for about a year and have worked through a number of books—including a book in preparation for the Sun Java Programmer’s Certification—but yours is the best so far, and I am only on Chapter 4. I’m talking about the 3rd edition of Java How to Program. I like everything about it: the tips, summaries, terminology, programming errors and good programming practices, and all the exercises. Your teaching style is recursive, and that is about the best compliment I know—I believe it is the best way to teach. With any luck, I will be ready for the test in a few months. So, thanks!

Format: Paperback
The book itself isn't bad - it's VERY concise, so real beginners won't use it very useful. The CD, on the other hand, is worth purchasing, as all the examples are much more widely discussed as in the book.
The book (and the CD), of course, has mistakes. I've covered them in my review on the book (I don't want to repeat myself here so check out that session here on amazon.com).
And the most important question: is this package worth its price when Core Java 3rd edition only costs you 64 bucks? Complicated question... Core Java 3rd edition is meant for 'Experienced Programmers', but I think even a beginner can understand most chapters, they're so damn well written. In comparison, Deitels' book is far too concise and does NOT cover most advanced features of the language - even the part on the I/O covers the OLD I/O library. If you take into account that Core Java discusses virtually EVERYTHING worth mentioning, this Deitel-book doesn't seem to be THAT good any more.
For reviewers that complained about the low sound quality - it's really bad, but still understandable, I've never had any comprehension problem (n.b. my native language isn't English).
To summarize, go for Core Java instead. It's much more comprehensive, covers much more advanced features of the language and is much cheaper. If you can't learn the basics of the language from that book, buy this one, too - and the CD as well (without the CD, this book is practically useless to beginners).

After starting and putting down a dozen of the most popular "learn Java" books I have finally found a presentation that works!
Not only was I not scared away by the exercises at the end of the chapters, I was actually challenged and pleased to find that I could do every coding exercise with the knowledge I had gained in that chapter.
It takes time and effort but it does work!
I have no prior programming experience. I highly recommend this book for any beginner.
This package includes the book Java How to Program 5th edition and the Java Multimedia Cyber Classroom. A highly interactive electronic version of the book that takes learning to the next level.

Format: Paperback
The Java Ultimate Cyber Classroom Training Course is great. I purchased both the book and the CD-ROM. Paul Deitel does a good job teaching the fundamentals of Java using audio clips with each example. He often includes additional useful information not mentioned in the book. With the skills learned in this course, you can be up and running an animated java applet on your own website or a friends. And the phone and email support is great. Paul takes his time to help you over the phone when you need to talk to someone and he guides you to places where you can get additional information to help solve your java problems. Highly recommend learning Java, or any programming language, with the Deitel Cyber Classroom training advantage!

Format: Paperback
I found this training course to be very useful for refreshing my Java knowledge, as well as catching up on JSP, servlets and new classes in Java 2.
Having the text both in book format (for when I am not studying at my computer), as well as the fully searchable and interactive HTML format with multimedia contents and Internet links, is great; also, there are several software goodies that come with the package, such as the Tomcat server and the Sun ONE environment.
The self review exercises and assessment exams at the end of each chapter are a fun (and challenging, thinking of the Hanoi Tower now!) way to validate the understanding of the Java concepts one has just studied.
Finally, I think the first chapters are a clear introduction to general programming concepts for the less experienced reader, with plenty of samples, exercises and links to more information. Definitely recommended.

By A Customer on December 10, 1997
Format: Paperback
I'm really sorry Prentice Hall had to be so concerned about taking this product to all possible JAVA platforms. As a result, they chose to use the ".au" sound format for the "8+ hours" of audio on the CD. It is so bad on a PC, the content is virtually unuseable. The book on the otherhand is well done, but is not worth the price if you can't take advantage of the multimedia tutorial.
