run if your teachers uses this book
i put alot of time and effort reading all these chapters and it just did not payoff. This book is horrible if your a novice in java, DO NOT START WITH THIS BOOK. If you dont have a teacher to help you, really run fast!! This book gives examples of exercises and gives you all the terms and building blocks, but it just doesnt help. Find another book is my best advice.

I'm baffled by some of the criticism in the other reviews for this book. This book is not only extremely well organized, but is written at an appropriate level for students who are learning how to program. The code is available to users and seems to compile just fine with various compilers. I may have a second printing, but there are very few errors. Also, the applets chapter can be skipped if that isn't your cup of tea. Have a look at this book yourself. Students and instructors alike have been please with it here.
