Pros: Book comes with complete solutions and walk through, worded nicely. If you know even a basic language or basic concepts of programming, this book will send you sailing. Cheaper and more effective than our in-class textbook ($125!!)
Cons: Does not go into the computer science details or in-depth theory, I am not sure if you will be able to actually learn the reasoning or theory behind something like a nested loop or sub-arrays within arrays. You'll learn how to do them for sure but I can't say if you will know how to use them in the future.
Overall: Get this if you have done programming! This is a solid book and for the price point, I can't ask for more! Just beware, you will have issues if you do NOT know ANY programming at all - I would recommend taking an online course in Python/Java - it is very hard to learn effectively/debug effectively if you take a nosedive into Java + using a book as your only foundation!
Some of the fundamentals are explored very, very quickly. It's fine when you simply want to refresh your memory, but don't expect to learn much from the start as the descriptions are faint. The examples are thrown here and there without too much of a context. I had to figure out which code does what, and so on.
The files they use in the book is available on their website for free and is detailed, for a beginner.
This book is designed for beginners so you won't learn advanced things as much. But, this will help you understand Java. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn Java and is a beginner.
