The Book was Better,
This review is from: Java Fundamentals I and II LiveLesson (Video Training) (Pt. 1-2) (Misc. Supplies)I expected to play this on my DVD player and follow along with my laptop for any step-by-step code examples. I had great hopes of seeing programming concepts creatively illustrated in ways that just can't be accomplished in a book.
Instead, my DVD player didn't recognize the discs and I could only play them on my computer. This was basically fourteen hours of staring at code already written in a NetBeans editor while a faceless (and somewhat monotone) voice explained how the code works. The mouse pointer moves around or highlights some text to point out a particular area of code, the lessons sometimes shift to JavaDoc or a diagram, and you see Paul's face while he gives the intro and summary of each lesson... but it wasn't enough to keep me engaged.
Most if not all of the examples come from the book Java How to Program by Deitel & Associates, also around a hundred bucks. Personally, I'd prefer the book. If I'm staring at a pre-existing code sample, it's easier to... Read more

Great course to learn Java,
This review is from: Java Fundamentals I and II LiveLesson (Video Training) (Pt. 1-2) (Misc. Supplies)Original review by Biagio Beatrice, JUG Lugano [...]
Java Fundamentals I and II is a multimedia Java programming language course. It's composed by 14 hours of video tutorials in 2 Dvd plus one book with code used in the video tutorials.
In the first Dvd, 7 hours of video are dedicated to the basic Java concepts: statements, classes and objects.
In the second dvd are approached the object oriented concept like inheritance and polymorphism.
In both Dvd there are tutorials about Netbeans and Eclipse very useful to the beginners.
The course don't need to be installed, there's a software that play video tutorials, you put inside and go. It run on Windows 2000, XP , Vista and on Mac but not on Linux (!!) you should use wine to run it on Linux but i didn't tested it. It would be fine if it could run on Linux too.
The Dvd needs at least 1280x960 video resolution so should not work fine on all personal computers. The course doesn't run on a dvd player,... Read more
Excellent means to diversify your learning of Java,
This review is from: Java Fundamentals I and II LiveLesson (Video Training) (Pt. 1-2) (Misc. Supplies)I am using this product to learn java along with a Java programming book. The instructional videos were well done as is the 120 page source code listing that comes with it. It gives me a break from working through a text book and does a great job in it's use of examples to drive home key aspects of the Java language. Excellent resource.
