2.0 out of 5 stars Beware of knock-offs March 28 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What I received was a cheap reprint of the original text done in India in black and white, rather than the color version. Beware saving a buck or two!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for even experience developers July 3 2007
By Mark A. Franjione - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been programming C++ for 12+ years now (C for 23+), and I was hoping Deitel had a Developer Series book for Java (like they have for C#), but there currently is not one.

However, that did not deter me from purchasing their "How to Program" book, and it has been worth it. If you are an experienced developer, this book still contains good info, with great examples, is up-to-date with the latest Java language enhancements.

If you're one of those people who judge a book by the inverse proportion of the number of pages, please rethink your view. Sure, this book is big, but it shows all you need to know, which is great if you are new to programming, and is a minor hassle if you are not.

Colorized code helps greatly (like your IDE). It gets into language syntax/semantics but also the various java import libraries - graphics, database, et. al.

The Software Engineering tips are always "right on".

I am currently taking a graduate class in Java at my local university and this book has come in handy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Java How to Program 7th edition May 26 2007
By Brian A. Maresca - Published on Amazon.com
The text assumes no prior programming experience. The style is clear, if somewhat oversimplified, examples are easy to follow. There are appendices for reference on questions such as operator precedence. Problems at the end of chapters reflect the material presented.

New terms are defined precisely and clearly, and relevant examples are given. CD's with many example programs are included.

The authors, however, have a tendency to repeat themselves, possibly in an attempt to make the material more accessible. Self-evident concepts, such as that pseudocode is not real code are repeated unnecessarily. Also, sections of example Java code are reprinted in full repeatedly with code additions or variations. This repetition and oversimplified approach has resulted in a 1596 page text. Don't drop it on your foot!

Yes, I recommend this text, but you may have to exercise some patience with occasional overly drawn out exposition.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! Feb. 6 2007
By Rajiv Krishnaswamy - Published on Amazon.com
It is both detailed and easy to understand. Covers pretty much every aspect of Java with lots of examples but doesn't spoon feed you with overly simplified examples even in the early chapters. I haven't finished reading all of it yet (its a massive 1500 pages and packed) but so far I feel it has definitely been worth the money. I am looking forward to reading what seems to be an in depth coverage of Web Applications and Web Services in this book. And at the time of my writing of this review, this book is as up to date as it gets.

5.0 out of 5 stars JAVA Book March 13 2007
By Michelle A. Alviso - Published on Amazon.com
This book has everything my professor was talking about in my online programming class.

I have two books for my class, but didn't even need to read the other one because this book has everything.

Very good examples of codes. I like a book that has a lot of code examples. It has a long list of index too for great searching.

By Dude - Published on Amazon.com

I used this book to begin my studies in Java. I finished all chapters and then bought an SCJP preparation book. I completed the exam with a score of 75% (59% is passing). I constantly use this book for reference. Well layed out and has everything.
