Overview

The fast and easy way to understanding the fundamentals of OOP

Want to learn about object-oriented programming quickly and easily? Looking to brush up on modeling, classes, and attributes? Then OOP Demystified is the easy-to-understand, step-by-step guidebook that will help you figure out the ins-and-outs of object-oriented programming (OOP).

Written for anyone without formal training in the subject, OOP Demystified teaches complex OOP topics in clear, plain languageā€”from the reasons why objects are successful as models for programming to case modeling, class diagrams, interfaces, and much more. The authors leave out unnecessary, time-consuming information to deliver the essentials you need to begin and maintain all your OOP projects.

Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, OOP Demystified is your shortcut to mastering object-oriented programming.

This one-of-a-kind self-teaching text offers:

  • An easy way to understand OOP
  • A quiz at the end of each chapter

    Aptly named and truly useful

    I have been struggling to understand object oriented concepts and programming. This book seems to have broken through the barrier with good explanations and examples. I finally have a handle on OOP. If you understand and can program in Java this will be boring, but for those of us who want to get an understanding of Object Orientation, its terminology, and its usage, this is a great book.
