    Worst textbook ever!

    This is just one textbook in this series- and they are ALL bad! Working through the tutorials will in NO way prepare you for the assignments at the end. If I wasn't forced to buy this book for my class I would not have-- and now I'm searching for a book to help me get the info I need to actually pass my class because this book certainly won't teach me anything!

    Don't Buy this Book

    Poorly produced book. Overpriced especially since it wasn't hardcover.
    Poorly written, lots of typographical errors. Crappy case problems.
    I'm aggravated it was the required text in my JavaScript class.
    There must be better books out there. This is not one of them.

    Poorly Written, Full of Mistakes

    This is an awful textbook.

    Reading through this textbook has been a considerable pain, as I have to read things over and over again to understand what's being explained. Sometimes new concepts are introduced or questions are naturally raised, but no answer is alluded to or provided until later on in the chapter (or maybe never). It's clear that these writers aren't good teachers as they can't anticipate the thought processes of their readers. Oftentimes I'd get fed up with their writing and just Google the topic myself and find a much more clearly written explanation from some random blogger. That's pretty sad.

    To add insult to injury, every chapter contains at least 1 or 2 serious typos or mistakes that result in confusion. In the chapter I'm reading now for example (Tutorial 5, page 255), they actually state the opposite of an expected result in an example of a regular expression. It's obvious that this textbook did not go through any thorough proofreading and editing, which is critical in a textbook about programming where lack of proofreading results in buggy code.

    Don't suffer through this textbook. Demand a new one or complain to the department if your teacher insists on using this. If you want to teach yourself, there are plenty other options to choose from.
