As for the price of the book, mentioned by the other negative reviewer, I agree it is a bit high; but it is worth it. Most good java college class learning books (ie books by Horstmann or the Deitels) cost around this much.
As for this book, it is excellent! It uses BlueJ extensively and really gives a new programmer a solid background in OOP. I highly recommend it!
Interspersed into the chapters are numerous exercises reviewing the material. My students do all the exercises. All of the basic procedural programming concepts are presented within object programming contexts. Correct software engineering concepts are also introduced with OOP examples and exercises.
One of my favorite aspects of the text is students work with existing code to update and modify. Students are required to read and understand the existing code before making the changes. (Many students cannot read/understand code to save their lives, they just write/compile/run over and over until something works.)
Another important aspect of this text is the unique software provided for free that allows students to create objects they may interact with directly, rather than simply running a program with objects. This is fantastic and I do believe it is unique, not available in any other programming environment. Leaning object oriented thinking is hard for many students and the visual display of a class (an icon) that students then create objects from (a different icon) is terrific.

That's a serious rip-off

The book has clear and precisely targeted chapters that run you through object orientated programming with BlueJ. You will have a small conversation to say Eclipse or Netbeans, however, this book really made me appreciate the power of BlueJ. It readable, it's in a compact form that packs so much in a smallish form factor, easy to travel with. Barnes & Kollig make a good addition to any student's collection. However, I would advise the student to use this book before the course work starts. The diagrams and project based work really helped me prepare for the actual course work, the goals of which were to teach the fundamentals of OOB.
Worth every penny..Paul C
Mi sono accorto oggi che nel libro mi avete inviato mancano tutte le pagine dalla numero 69 alla pagina 101 comprese; infatti dalla prima pagina del capitiolo 3 (pag. 67) il libro riprende dalla prima pagina del capitolo 4 (pag. 101).
Il libro è perfettamente rilegato e non presenta danni, nè è spaginato da cui si evince che così mi fu inviato da voi.
Mi pare, nel caso, assai assurdo che possa scadere un qualsiasi termin e per la sua resa.
Besonders die Randbemerkungen, in denen Fachbegriffe erklärt werden, war für die Prüfungsvorbereitung hilfreich.
Seul problème la reliure un peu fragile.
