  • 5 starsFor Serious Java students

    Deitel and Deitel have written two books on Java that are intended for serious Java students: this one plus "Advanced Java2 Platform." You will not be able to wade through these two tomes in 21 days. I really consider these two books to be references that are also excellent teaching tools.

    This book, "Java How to Program Fourth Edition" is very comprehensive since it covers all the necessary Java subjects plus some subjects not normally covered in introductory Java books, for example networking. A rather thorough introduction to many aspects of UML is included as supplementary material at the end of each chapter. There are lots of examples sprinkled throughout the book. The enclosed CD -ROM includes the examples and the JDK so that the student can execute the programs.

    The color graphics used extensively throughout the book improves understandability greatly.

    This is a serious Java book for serious Java students. Don't expect to breeze through it, but you will really know Java by its end.

  • 4 starsPretty Good intro book - with LOTS of coding examples

    I'm taking a Java class at the local college & using this as a text. (I'm 20+ years in development, so am not a newbie) Book is VERY readable and easy to understand as opposed to some other Intro Java books out there. Presumes nothing, so there are sections you can skip if you have any programming experience. You can't use this as a reference book though. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn Java, especially if you don't have any OOP.

  • 2 starsMisguided required reading for CS students

    Most people who purchase Deitel books do so because it is the required course material for their CS (pick a number) class. Deitel book are needlessly saturated with filler material that do not justify their extremely high cost. You could easily save your money and learn Java by going through the Sun tutorials which are FREE, not to mention the countless online Java tutorials out there (just do a Google search "Java Tutorials"). Stay away from this book! If you have to buy it, then please save some money by purchasing a used book.
