I just finished Ch 4 and will be reading Ch 5 this week. Ch 4 had 80 pages in it. Ch 5 has 76. Since my Tech School does a Chapter a week, I had to read and digest 80 pages about Decision Structure code in one week. Then, I took the test which had about 10 questions on deciphering what some given code means. There was not enough practice for these kinds of "decipher what x = code" questions in the book.

I did utilize the MyProgramminLab resource. It was too simplistic and clumsy to utilize. And, if I were to utilize the Review and Practice Questions and Algorithm Workbench and Programming Challenges for each Chapter, there is no where to go to find out if I got the answers correct. Shouldn't the online resource have something that lets you work on these in the book and then check the online resource on what was the correct answer. I literally have nothing to refer to to find out what the correct answers are. There are online Video Notes: but there is only 1 video note for 1 of 18 Practice Programming Challenges. I'd like to do the Programming Challenges, but I have no idea how to proceed, and no time left to just dive in after spending literally 12 to 15 hours in a week just reading and analyzing the text with 80 pages. If this book is taught as an online class, the student is left floundering, desperately trying to achieve but is left as if trying to solve a problem with variables that don't fit in the given problem.

This book is the easiest book i have ever had to read for a class. Not only does Tony explain everything very well, he makes java fun to learn. The explanations are very clear and there are so many examples and practice problems to learn from. I would recommend this book to anybody that has any interest in learning java.

This is one of the better programming texts I have read, and it clearly and concisely breaks down difficult object oriented concepts and gives applicable examples. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a quick crash course in Java, or as an instructional text.

You can NEVER GO WRONG WITH GADDIS... NEEEEEVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEERRRR...

If you fail with this book, i suggest you switch your major.

I went from absolute zero to DEMI GOD of JAVA (or his C++ book which I have used) with GADDIS....

I didn't even have to work the problems. He gives a shell of how things should work and YOU expand on that shell.

I bought this book for my introductory computer science class. It's a great book, because it gives nice programming examples and makes the material very easy to understand. Upon reading a couple chapters I began to understand more programming than I have with previous books. I would recommend this book for anybody who is beginning out with programming in the java computer language, or anybody who just wants to learn how to program.

It's a great book for starters. Will give you a very good introduction to the Java language . If you are a C++ programmer you can start programming in Java in weeks . This book however does not have any topics on Data Structures.Once you get a head start on Java get a different book on Data Structures with Java.
