There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I would have LOVED more examples and a greater emphasis on program design, debugging, and problem solving. I'd say 90% of my beginner frustrations weren't with the misunderstanding the concepts but just not knowing how to properly get myself un-stuck when my program was compiling right but not returning the right result.
If you're a beginning JAVA student who benefits from reading about concepts instead of just stackoverflow-ing everything, this is a reasonable textbook to rent/buy.
Also one chapter exercise (I believe chapter 3) tells you to make a program to check for palindromes, and again, there is no example of how to go about doing that in the chapter at all. In fact, palindromes aren't mentioned by the author in the text until chapter 6. The book has a few oversights like this.

I wont recommend this version of book or new Kindle.
If you purchase this book new, you have access to supplement from the website (additional chapters and solutions to all exercises otherwise you have only the even numbered ones). As the code in the book can only be used one, this might not be available from second-hand books (you then have to purchase the access). If you are an Instructors at some school, you get more supplements; which I find stupid since it will probably leak onto the internet in one way or other.
