This is a really a good book to purchase if you want an introduction tot he Java Language. I picked up this book after taking 2 semesters of learning the Java language, and thought this book was better tat discussing the topics. Its short, but it explain all the little nuances of the language like what static means in a method statement as well as in a variable statement. Those are some of the little things that get people. Classes, objects, and all the subtle details about them, such as polymorphism, encapsulations and such are explained really well. Also annotations and threads, two concepts that I had troubles with in school, were explained well. I wish they had covered network programming more indepth, since that is an area of programming that I enjoy--maybe they well cover it in a later book. But all in all, this was a well put together book and well worth the money to purchase. I would recommend this book to programmers who are getting into the Java language as well as non-programmers who well be new to Java. You can cut you study time and increase your learning of the language in a short period of time. I think it took me a few hours to cover the first three chapters. And maybe an hour or so for each additional chapter after that. The only chapter that took longer was the I/O and NIO, but you come out of that with a really solid understanding of the streaming objects as a whole. Good book. I'm certainly going to pick up the Java EE6 tutorial next.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
