Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Cadenhead's Teach Yourself Java 2 in 24 Hours is a definite beginner's book, a self-tutorial in 24 one-hour chapters. The guides on networking, Threads (the ability of Java to multitask by allowing for multiple processes and actions at the same time), and Swing (a powerful Java interface package for visual design) are for advanced Java programmers but will fit well within most libraries.

From the Back Cover

Sams Teach Yourself Java in 24 Hours is a step-by-step tutorial broken up into 24 short, easy one-hour chapters. It starts out at a lower level than Sams Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days, and takes things at a slower pace, focusing on key programming concepts and essential Java basics. The basic structure of the book and many of its examples remain the same in this new edition, but the author makes use of dozens of reader comments to make improvements to explanatory text and example programs. Additionally, fresh material will cover new components of Java 2, including Java Foundation Classes, Java2D classes for two-dimensional image manipulation, and JavaBeans--a feature of Java 1.1 that has become a key part of Java programming.

Customer Reviews

The code used in the lessons is outdated and won't even compile in many cases.
DPUT@prodigy.net
The author doesn't explain all the different components of the code in the examples very well, if at all.
Philip Isaac Perez
I don't think I can even put that I know Java on my resume after going through this.

Java is not an easy language to learn which is why I believe some folks have chosen to give it a low mark. I didn't find any errors in this book which is refreshing after reading SQL in 24 hours (Bad Book). I didn't however run very much of the code in the book but I did examine most of the code thoroughly and didn't find anything major. The reason I didn't run the examples is that I started with much more advanced books and got knocked back. So I picked this one up and it helped me out quite a bit, in understanding concepts and understanding the classes included in the jdk. The book is written on a very personal level which I liked a lot and I thought the author was funny.
The book does get much more advanced starting in chapter 10, though this is just a part of learning java. The only reason that I didn't give this book a 5 is that author fails to completely explain a few of the examples in the book. This just made me read the examples over and over again until I understood them. Good learning tool. I would definetly not suggest reading Java 2 in 21 days after a book like this, I would go with Beginning Java 2 by Ivor Horton, which is an excellent book but I wouldn't start with Ivor's book, if your knowledge about java=0.

I picked up a couple books on JSP and realized I needed to know more about Java. I didn't know anything... until I got this book.
Well written, worded for a novice, this book will teach you the skills you need to become independent in Java programming. I highly recommend it.
Rogers' sense of humor will crack you up as well. It was a pleasant and informative book. I highly recommend it.

I haven't read this book -- I read its predecessor Teach Yourself Java 1.1 in 24 Hours. I felt that it was a great way for me to get started with Java. It made things very easy for me!
The book doesn't get terribly deep... at the end, you will want to get another book to learn more. After finishing Java 1.1 in 24 Hours, they recommended that I buy Teach Yourself Java 1.1 in 21 Days, because it goes into more depth. Unfortunately, that book is much more confusing and disorganized, and also makes a lot of assumptions about what you know.
The 21 Days book seems to be written for people who are already professional programmers in other languages. The 24 Hours book is great at starting from scratch and explaining everything. Rogers Cadenhead writes in a clear style that is also light and amusing.

Format: Paperback
I looked in to many Java 2 books before making this selection.
You may ask why did I choose this book out of all the others? When making purchase I always have three determining factors, How well is this book written? Will I want read this book? (Will it keep my attention long enough to actually be worth what I paid?) And finally price.
This book met all these criteria's quite well. Rogers explains topics with a pleasant sense of humor. And you actually understand what he's talking about.
This book is relatively cheap... you defiantly get your bang for the buck.
THIS BOOK IS PERFECT FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO KNOW WHAT Java 2 IS ALL ABOUT!
I definitely recommend this book.

Before I read this book I was very unexperienced with Java. After reading it I found that I could write small applications and some applets. This was a tremendous leap for me and now I am contimplating on buying the Teach yourself Java in 21 days book. Some code errors exist but the online documantation is up to date and very helpful. I recommend this book for a beginner intrested in Java. This is not a boring, lecture clustered, book. The author does a fine job of keeping the readers attention. For those with some Java experience, this would be mostly review, but none-the-less a good book. By best reguards to Mr. Cadenhead, the author.

Format: Paperback
This book is not for everyone and was never meant to be. The Author is trying to hit individuals who have never programmed. He succeded in this. It does drop off a little bit in Chapt. 10 but JAVA programming does this to everybody. This book is not meant to be a reference. See O'Rielly for that. My only complaint is that he stuck to Swing to teach readers hot to create GUI's. There are other, older, and more stable methods than Swing.

This book is a very good introdcution to JAVA and help you LEARN the LANGUAGE rather that give you examples. I learn better with doing a lot of examples, but this book does a great job for the way it was meant to be, a Language teaching book, rather than an exersice book. It does have examples, wich I've found good in order to test your knowlege. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR COPY AND PASTE ME (STEAL ME) script, don't get this book. This is for someone who wants to be able to wite their OWN scripts in a matter of days.

This book is a solid learning tool. I have to agree with the reviewer that said the book does get tough after chapter 9. The vast majority of the code I've tried works. This book does a good job of getting you up to speed on Java. I would suggest using this book as a starting point and going else where to get really indepth information. As far as getting a clue about Java, this book is definite buy.
