Be aware, if your buying the Kindle Edition of this book, there is no Access-Code to the Pearson publisher web-site, normally included in the paper edition, which provides additional video and help information. You can however, buy an Access-Code from the publisher for $30! ... so add that to the cost of your Kindle Edition.

It is an OK book if you already know other programming languages and familiar with object oriented programming. However, if Java is your first programming language, I do not recommend this book. Information presented in a way that is not easy to follow. Also, many things are "assumed" - not explained. You will have to memorize things instead of understanding what you are doing and why. Programming examples explained in the book are easy, but exercises at the end of each chapter are challenging for people who never programmed before. You are simply not presented with techniques you need to know in order to create some programs. That is why you may feel frustrated.

If you are new to programming, I highly recommend the book "Introduction to Java Programming" by Danial Liang. It is very easy to follow. Liang uses clear and simple language explaining every detail. Case studies are well explained too. Actually, if you read this book and go through worked out case studies, you can do exercises in Deitel's book "Java: How to Program."

I don't usually write reviews, but felt the need to because this is absolutely the best and most comprehensive book out there in regards to Java programming. Java: How To Program succeeds in being both a tutorial and a reference. The book is filled with a significant amount of example code, which I found easy to follow. The authors provide excellent comments in the code examples to help the reader follow it more effectively. The colors and graphics make this dense text engaging and readable. I am impressed by the thorough explanations, but the text is also succinct enough as to not be horribly wordy. This book really does include something valuable for any level of Java programmer (from the novice to the advanced.) My only criticism is the author's consistent use of the printf command, which I believe is better suited for other programming languages. Even though this book is quite costly, it is worth every penny if you are a serious Java programmer.

That just about says it all. This would be my choice. For all around coverage, clear program examples, a broad, up to date range of topics and precise, consistent, accurate explanations, I'd have to go with this Deitel 9th edition. Great treatment of Multithreading, GUI programming, events, all the standard OO stuff. I like the inclusion of many Java "peripheral" technologies like JSON, REST, SOAP, MySQL, JavaDB, Apache, GlassFish, JavaServer Faces, jnlp, and others. The book has a nice integration of the use of NetBeans, which is now a fully mature Java dev platform that works with the database and server apps. And the website has more than the full complement of online resources. (I am assuming I would be stuck on an island with an internet connection.)

This is a very comprehensive book. It's size may be quite intimidating but once you start reading, it won't seem so anymore. The text explains programming in such an easy way that anyone can learn Java. It also has some very good exercises and a lot of online resources. This particular edition doesn't come with a CD though like the other editions but all the contents of the CD are online as part of the resources the book comes with. This is a much better approach as I always seem to break or scratch my CDs anyway. The authors are very accessible too; just send them an email and they reply promptly. I will highly recommend this book to anyone who really wants to learn Java with ease.

Format: Paperback
I have been programming for about a year now, and found that despite being relatively relaxed with it - because my own laziness I missed out on some of the fundamentals of programming. All in all I thought I needed more practice, to read more code and thoroughly test my abilities and intuition on even the most basic of problem sets.

This book has thus far, done it all for me. It's incredibly well done, very in depth without going into talkative detail - yet has all you need for Java. The exercises are by far the most enjoyable aspect, they test everything - rigorously and 70% of them have the answers in the book as well. The coding problems are inventive and test all you've learned throughout the chapter as well. There are about 10-20 of those at the end of each chapter.

All in all, this is the best Java book out there.

A good book like a good teacher makes all the difference. This is an excellent book for beginners in Java. It should not be classified as 'entry-level' since it quickly teaches you to build all the cool whiz stuff that you typically deal with. Once you master this, it will be easier to proceed to more complex stuff.

Java is a BIG subject and there are few shortcuts to learning it. Having said that, I did try try diving into Java a few times but drowned each time, so to speak. Hey I can program ! I have been programming for some 35 years and cut my teeth on various assemblers, C, PL/I, COBOL etc. After a number of false starts, attempting to write code without enough understanding of the language, I went back to D&D. I had the fifth edition already but then acquired the latest and worked through the chapters.
The coding syntax of Java is much like C. Add to that object-orientation, classes and the vast class libraries, it becomes a completely different, more complex language. You just have to understand the basics; and there are a lot more "basics" in Java than in C.
The book itself is some 1500 pages spread over 31 chapters. Once you get into the book, you can see the logic in its presentation. If you have had a C programming background, you can skip over some of the pages but read them anyway as Java does have some subtle differences. D&D present information in layers of complexity, explaining as much as is needed for now and delivering more detail in later chapters. There are many examples, each introducing a few new concepts until each topic has been covered.
As a long time programmer, I find this book just the perfect way to learn. Its easy to read, the information is presented in a way I can understand and at a pace and level of depth that is consistent throughout the book.
The Deitel's Ninth is an excellent study guide.
