Java Super Review helps students brush up on tough subjects. They are more thorough than ordinary subject reviews but less complex than voluminous study guides. Numerous examples accompany the review and bring it to life. The Java Super Review includes an overview of language fundamentals, object-oriented programming, exception handling, i/o streams and threads, class libraries, applets, applications, custom components, Java Beans, and Java Swing. The accompanying CD-ROM contains the Java SDK (Software Development Kit) for both Windows and Linux, as well as the source code for the programs and examples presented in the book. An excellent introduction to this important programming language.
