Good format for abundant practice and concept reinforcement
Along my self-study route for Objective-C, I've done 5 chapters in one book and 7 in another, writing the book code, debugging and then translating the concepts into some of my own ideas, to see what I've learned.Was this review helpful?

I've been using, 3 different books as I work to learn Objective-C. I worked with each one for a period of time, until I get to a point where the book isn't working for me. That's usually when I am working through a sample in the book, and I can't decide what a particular line does and cannot find a reference in the book using the table of contents, index, or previous examples that explains it in a way I understand. Or I cannot create an example of my own that's similar to the one I've just gotten working from the book.
At that point, I switch to another book.
When I switched to this book, I stayed. I like it because it's really straightforward. Holzner presents one concept at a time. I do the example in the book. Then I recreate that example with words and objects from my own imagination, to make sure I get the idea. Then I go through the code and ask myself, what is this line doing? I can really do that with this book. And when I say , 'Gee I don't know!", I can go back and find a previous example to remind myself why you code a given line a given way.
I've been journaling a few of these examples at anewobjectiveDOTblogspotDOTcom Maybe they'll provide a study technique that helps you. Let me know. (I also noted the names of the other two books, which have a lot of good information. I plan to return to them when I finish this one)

Exactly what I needed!
This is exactly what I needed. I have a strong background in C; a little in C++; a few other languages as well (e.g. MS/VB). I got a couple of Objective C books, but was struggling to get the "Big Picture". This book got me there. Lots of example code. I still need the reference books for the details, but at least I've moved past the language and on to COCOA.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
