5.0 out of 5 stars Best Java Resource April 2, 2008
Format:Paperback
This is the best resource for learning Java I have found. The book assumes the reader knows nothing about the language, starting with the most basic elements of the programming language and moving ahead to more complex topics that build on those elements. The code examples are in colored text so that it is very easy to read. Tips are given throughout the text for avoiding common errors that Java programmers fall into. The information is also in depth - every aspect of the language is explained in detail, and this is why the book is so thick. I don't think you could find a more thorough book. It's ideal for both beginners and experts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for Learning JAVA February 7, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Highly recommended. There are animations on the included CD to make things clearer; the sample programs are very good. There are lots of hands on programming exercises. This book explains JAVA more clearly than other beginning JAVA books I've purchased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Place to Start September 1, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was the 3rd book I bought to try to learn Java, within a few minutes of opening it I soon realized that if I cold not learn Java with this book it was time to throw in the towel. It starts of at the very beginning and presents so much detail you actually get a feel for how much you are learning. The exercises at the end of the chapters stretch your brain with out snapping it. If you are just a beginner or maybe need a little more learning depth at a slower pace, buy this book!
