In the months I struggled with this book, I thought the problem was me. I thought that as a beginner to Java, I just wasn't getting it. Well, perhaps... But when I switched to a different book, the lightbulbs went on; and my copy of this 'Dummies' book went (literally) in the trash. As an alternative to this title, I recommend Sam's 'Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days' or Sun's 'Java Tutorial.' Then, if you decide to go deeper, pick up 'Thinking in Java' by Bruce Eckel.

This Is A WONDERFUL Book! This Book Is Good For Beginners (Like Me). I Loved This Book, It Was Great. Not Only Is This Book Fun, But It Is Easy Too. I Am Only 11 And Even I Could Understand This Book!

Unless you're already familiar with object oriented programming, you'll probably be lost from page 1. Without providing any foundation, this book aimlessly stumbles around with undefined terms and incomplete examples. (If you're not familiar with DOS, you won't even be able to compile your first Java file using their instructions.) I had to take some Java courses through work before I could even understand what these authors are trying to talk about -- but even then, this book fails to make sense. I've been impressed with other 'Dummies' books, but this one really misses the mark.

Overall this is a poor book, definently not for someone new to programming. The source codes that they give are poorly commented and often leave a lot to the imagination. I am experienced in c++ and I found myself going through some chapters several times just to understand what was going on. However, some of the examples (the applets themselves) they give you are very nice, if you're just going to be copying the source code and using it on your website.

Bad. It's one of the few books that I couldn't force myself to finish no matter how hard I tried. Although the title says that it's for dummies, that's not what the author assumes. So many of the stuff in the example programs are unexplained and some of it doesn't work. Buy some other book instead of this.
