Written well for the most part, the author breaks down the code and concepts in an easy to understand way that doesn't require any previous knowledge to programming.
Using the Student Prime shipping allowed me to get the book, fast!

This book is so complete because it includes object oriented programming explanation without being a lot . Additionally includes pieces of advises to improve programming technique and of course a depth explanation of Java programming.

Access code does not provide access to MyProgrammingLab. Only the etext. Also the Pearson portal for MPL is fickle, and does not allow login with correct username/password input. I most likely will have to pay $93 for the MPL access code through Pearson. Should have just bought this new at the bookstore.

excellent programming book for beginners. The exercises they have set up at their university of Washington website called PracticeIt is worth the price alone.
