So I'm a college student at k-state. Why review this book then? well I actually am enjoying this book. As a person who hates text books because they are fairly difficult to understand (and I have aspergers), this book is the first text book I'm enjoying.
This book goes over a lot of stuff. From simple basics to some advance. I'm not sure who "Software Engineer" is but this book DOES go over the basics and moves towards some advanced stuff.
is it worth the money?
That depends on the person buying it. I'd say rent it first then buy it, take note you will be paying more in the end if you do that. I did do that and I have no regrets as a person who seriously enjoys programming.
What does it come with?
The book IF PURCHASED NEW, will have a code you can use to get access to some goodies like videos and files that have the code (i reccommend coding it down yourself for a better learning experience).
Do you reccomend the book?
Oh yes certainly. Again if your not a huge fan and just checking it out or simply taking the class to earn credits, just rent it. If your getting it for k-state and are just getting into the programming class, Start on chapter 2, that's where the coding begins so you'll get a better start for the semester.
Why 4/5 and not 5/5?
two things, it doesn't go over MVC (model-view-controller) which my prof does go over. and this book is paper back, whish it was hardback so that it would last me longer.
I already have access to an e-copy of this book, I decided to purchase the hardcopy in appreciation of the author.
I tried the registration process again and this time it worked. Now I have access to the online resources.
I think the full cost of this book is high so I rented it from Amazon. The book I received had tire marks on the first few pages and someone left marks on every single chapter's review questions, Find the Error and Algorithm workbench.
The book also comes with a CD with sample Java programs and development environments, but I never had to use the CD. (Better to download current software instead.)
To those who say to get an earlier edition, be warned that the questions are not all identical. There are changes to the program challenges since the previous edition which means you could get an F on programming assignments if you're not careful.
