This is the worst waste of eight dollars I have ever spent. It should be placed with the fiction titles instead of the computer ones.
The text constantly references fields and objects that don't exist in the example code, the code is totally messed up. For instance "j;+" and "j+;" do not increment the field. it should be "j++". I can understand having mistakes but this book is filled with them. This book is a mistake. There are two separate pieces of code that are supposed to be different but are identical. items referenced in example code don't exist.
I could go on and on about this piece of ****. Reading this book made me angry. If a student were to use this book before taking a test they would certainly fail.
The editor and authors must have been near comatose from cocaine when working on this pulp.

Format: Paperback
This Schaum's outline really disappoints me. First of all, it doesn't even come close to the typical Schaum's formula - some theory, some worked examples, some exercises with solutions, some additional unsolved exercises. I would expect some deviation from the formula on a Schaum's outline that is about a programming language, but the biggest problem in this outline is the complete absence of programming exercises. It is impossible to know if you understand a programming language if you cannot come up with a program that works yourself. Also, the instruction part of the Schaum's is not detailed enough to really "get" the material. Especially flimsy is any material on event handling in Java. This is tricky material to explain to a Java newbie, but it is essential, since otherwise a user really has no way to interact with a Java program. I suggest if you want to learn Java that you pick up either "Head First Java" or "Core Java", and skip this outline completely. I give it two stars only because, even though I found a few errors in the code here and there, there is nothing really wrong with the facts given or the examples presented, even though they are not helpful to the end task of learning Java.

The thing you have to keep in mind is that it is designed for students. It concentrates on the basics of the language -- flow control, variables, etc. It has great exercises. But it doesn't really focus on GUI design. I found it invaluable for prepping for the Cert exam however.
And, it is very cheap.

Earlier I had purchased Hubbard's C++ and had no complaints.But this book by the same author leaves much to be desired. The explanations are well written, ...typically Hubbard style, but I was very dissapointed by the way the examples and the chapters were organised in the book. A newcomer who is learning example by example and from chapter to chapter is bound to get confused. In an earlier chapter, an example uses try and catch block to take an input from the user, but the mechanism of try and catch blocks are explained much later in the book. So this book is basically for those who are already conversant with Java and just needs a good brushing-up. If you are new to Java, use this book as a supplement rather than your main text. The examples in the book are excellent and fun to try out.

As another reviewer has pointed out, there's a lot of help in setting up the jdk, but be aware that the information is given only for Windows. The basics of the language are covered well, but you should have your textbook handy. There are a few mistakes (not mistakes really, but the author didnot want to bring in all the complexities). As a college text, I was looking for some more math based examples, but there aren't too many. The ones he does give don't use adequate formatting of the results. For example, the results for a particular problem (getting the values of sin(x)) are given to 16 decimal places or so. But the exercises themselves are great for practising, which will surely come in useful.

While this book is far from complete, and the examples are less than practical, it has the virtue of being affordable by students. It's a good choice as textbook for a course, where the main content comes from instructor-provided handouts.

Format: Paperback
The book offers a quick ramp up into Java coding. It chooses to omit many descriptions of graphics classes. The focus is on the pure computational classes. You can get a fast understanding of the core of these classes. Enough to write simple programs. While 1 chapter is about graphics, it is very skimpy and you should not be encouraged to learn from it.

A shortcoming is the lack of exercise sets. Schaum's books are often replete with these. Here, no less than in other topics, exercises are needed. The cover is somewhat misleading. It says fully solved exercises are present. Indeed. But what is also needed are exercises that are NOT fully solved.
