Teaches students Java from the ground up, and builds upon their understanding of previously learned concepts to introduce new programming features.
Exciting and motivational real-world applications have been selected so that students, in working through their creation and implementation, learn the fundamentals of programming.
Students learn programming by working through and “doing” many examples. This process reinforces and solidifies important programming concepts and fundamentals.
Emphasizes key portions of the source-code listings in the text with a yellow background to illustrate key concepts.
Helps students grasp key content in every step of the learning process, and provides them with line numbers for easy reference in every sample program.
Teaches students the Java command line debugger.
Offers students practical advice and suggestions to enhance and accelerate their learning.
Replaces flowcharts which are less effective pedagogically and outdated by industry standards.
Provides students with immediate feedback after each section.
Allows students to quickly look up important terms and definitions.
Allows students to assess and test their mastery of the content. The “programming challenge” is optional and can be assigned to those students seeking a further challenge.
