(*Trust me, this is the only series of tech books I've read where 100 pages doesn't feel like that much work)
I have a friend who used a Head First book and hated it. He said it was disjointed and hard to follow. I asked if he had read it in chronological order? He said no and that he jumped around the book a lot. I asked if he did the exercises in the book like they told him to do, and again he said no.
People, you have to do it the way they say to do it. If you do it their way you will learn a lot.
I’m sure that not all the Head First books are equal, but I will be checking out more of them.
Thanks guys, good job.
Heads First Design Style
This book is designed to make you use the best part of your brain, the picture learning area, which uses pictures along with caption to make your brain "understand" the concept as opposed to memorize (short term) the concept. For some reason with so many pictures I remembered tons more than I would from a text only book.
Examples Applications in this Book
-You make an app that adds the song you type into the textbox to appear on a playlist.
-You make an application for a T-shirt design website.
Edit: I explored canvas (how to draw stuff). Pretty enjoyable! I'm in the process of finishing Chapter 8 now, that is about videos.
This book is well worth the price. I consider it a bargain for the rapid knowledge transfer to your brain and actual useage.
