In The Art and Science of Java, Stanford professor and well-known leader in Computer Science Education Eric Roberts emphasizes the reader-friendly exposition that led to the success of The Art and Science of C. By following the recommendations of the Association of Computing Machinery’s Java Task Force, this first edition text adopts a modern objects-first approach that introduces readers to useful hierarchies from the very beginning.

Introduction; Programming by Example; Expressions; Statement Forms; Methods; Objects and Classes; Objects and Memory; Strings and Characters; Object-Oriented Graphics; Event-Driven Programs; Arrays and ArrayLists; Searching and Sorting; Collection Classes; Looking Ahead.

A modern objects-first approach to the Java programming language that introduces readers to useful class hierarchies from the very beginning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Art and Science of Java / review Feb. 10 2010
By -jmg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Best part about this book is that lectures from Stanford [CS106A] are available for free!!!

It takes a little elbow grease for the amateur to figure out how to link in libraries etc... but once this is done- you can delve into some meaningful [useful] programing examples early on. My plug for this book is as much for the corresponding class videos and handouts as it is for the book- which when combined together offer a great set of tools for learning computer programing and java. Once through the book and class materials [videos and homework] the student should be able to graduate on to more advanced java books without trouble.

...and if you're going through the Stanford lectures- you can ignore the first several assignments involving KARL and just start with the java assignments.

5.0 out of 5 stars great approach to learning how to program June 7 2010
By Dustin L. Striplin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I just finished taking a college course that uses The Art & Science of Java. This book takes a graphical approach to learning how to program. With a graphical approach the student can better understand how object oriented programming works. I taught myself java a few years ago, from a book that taught me how to make programs that output to the command prompt. I never understood object oriented programming until now.

3.0 out of 5 stars Experience from a self-learner Oct. 20 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to be able to follow the free online java course at stanford.
It uses the acm library, which makes it harder to get help online.
It is expensive compared to other popular books on java.

Other than that, it has some decents chapters, so I give it three stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth 5 stars but... May 29 2012
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wish the book directed the user to a site to view solutions to the actual problems and not just the review questions. It's obvious that this book is meant as a companion to the cs106a course in iTunes due to the fact that they both use the nice--but not widely accepted acm package. Great for absolute beginners (again, with the iTunes addition). Strongly recommended for anyone wanting to get into problem solving using computers, android app development, or trying to get an understanding before learning a C language.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well, it was better than I expected Aug. 21 2013
By Aaron Stark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my computer science class as the writer is also a professor at my college. The book is pretty decent at teaching you java if you are starting from scratch, but as you progress it gets a bit dense fairly quickly. There are some parts that I had to just skip since I couldn't understand them effectively as a beginner, however this book did do a great job of teaching me basic knowledge of java.
