Hi,
I'm a student using this as a textbook for intro to Object Oriented Programming using Java. This book is a nightmare. Please, if you're an instructor, don't use this book for your class. Me and others alike who are novices are confused by this book. If you use this book, expect to re-explain a lot to your students. The explanations of the basics are very confusing, as well as the wording alone. I'm confused by the wording of basic concepts I even understood in the text. It seems to get a little better once you get the roots of the programming down. But for me the most important part of a text is explaining the core concepts. Maybe this isn't for the novice, but for those of us in my class who are, we agree, just don't get this book.

I found this book to be helpful to a point, but it jumps around a lot, and to a beginning programmer, it can be a bit confusing. My suggestion to professors wanting to use this book for their classes is: find one more simplified only the experienced students understand it enough to implement it.

I am a student in Binghamton University, and I think this book stinik. First of all, no java standard package being used. Secondly, there is no answer to the questions in the book. The book is some what not clear and some information provided are wrong. Third, many questions at the end of the chapter can't be answer with what is covered in that chapter, I (and other students)have to read ahead in order to solved the questions. And by the way, pages keeps falling out of the book. My class is waiting for the rep to respond to that.
P.S: More than 1/4 of the class drop after the first project assign, because can't accomplished with what information provide by the book.

A good visual book, teaching by the UML diagrams. Suitable for beginners to intermediate level and a bit more. Nice colorful book. With the help of "Sample Developments" this book will give you some real practical experiments throughout each chapter. My suggestion for those who want to begin Java with no prior programming experience is "Java 60 Minutes a Day" which you can find it in my review list. In my view, as an intermediat programmer, is a bit difficult to understand core java with this book.

This book comes with an excellent package called javabook that allows you to write you first program in about 5 minutes. I'm not just talking about the standard "Hello World" type program but one with user input, output, and graphics. This book is the best written programming book I have ever read.

This is a supplement to my JAVA class in college, and it is not a great book. The book is REALLY overpriced, is flimsy and NOT worth the MONEY! (in comparison to other JAVA intro books that explain the material better). I am also a novice, and although he gives all these examples and it is somewhat helpfull at times, it does not teach well and in conjuction with my prof. who does not know how to teach, it is not a great combo. I actually bought another JAVA book so I do not have to read this book. The author is really wordy and makes it more confusing than it needs to be. IN short, do NOT waste your time with this book because it can be a waster of time, look into other intro books... maybe if it were cheaper it would be a better buy, but in this case, i say look for other book.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent introduction to the concepts of OO-programming. The book covers the fundamental OO-programming concepts clearly and uses lots of well-planned examples. It also uses an application development "methodology" that is well suited to the OO context. Having worked in mainframe IT for several years it is a pleasure to read a thoughtful, well planned approach to teaching the subject as opposed to simply having to plough through pages of confusing source code written by someone who wants to show off his/her advanced skills and/or the latest "bleeding edge" technology. Buy it, read it, download the JAVA 1.2 SDK from SUN and start learning to program using OO NOW!. Then buy one of the "Learn how to program in JAVA in under 2.5 nanoseconds ..." type books to learn the JAVA-specifics. PS Only criticism is the quality of the binding, I'd prefer to see a hard-back version.

Format: Paperback
This book is insanely bad for academic purposes. It uses a non-standard package (javabook), which, though useful, does not prepare you for actual Java programming. In addition, this book is one of the worst language references I've ever seen. The first-semester computer science course at my university switched to this book starting this semester, and it helps to make an already difficult course significantly harder than it needs to be. The only way this book can be effectively used is in a class taught by a superb instructor. Otherwise, forget it. The book is uninteresting, uninformative, and generally just not useful. To all computer science professors out there: please do not make your students use this book.
