Sams Teach Yourself Java in 24 Hours is a step-by-step tutorial that teaches someone with no previous programming experience how to create simple Java programs and applets.
It starts out at a lower level than Sams Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days, and takes things at a slower pace, focusing on key programming concepts and essential Java basics.
Although the basic structure of the book, and many of its examples, will remain the same in this new edition, the author will make use of dozens of reader comments to make improvements to explanatory text and example programs.
This new edition of the book maintains and improves upon all these qualities, while updating, revising, and reorganizing the material to cover the latest developments in Java and to expand the book's coverage of core Java programming topics.

This review is from: Sams Teach Yourself Java 2 in 24 Hours (Paperback)Java is not an easy language to learn which is why I believe some folks have chosen to give it a low mark. I didn't find any errors in this book which is refreshing after reading SQL in 24 hours (Bad Book). I didn't however run very much of the code in the book but I did examine most of the code thoroughly and didn't find anything major. The reason I didn't run the examples is that I started with much more advanced books and got knocked back. So I picked this one up and it helped me out quite a bit, in understanding concepts and understanding the classes included in the jdk. The book is written on a very personal level which I liked a lot and I thought the author was funny.
The book does get much more advanced starting in chapter 10, though this is just a part of learning java. The only reason that I didn't give this book a 5 is that author fails to completely explain a few of the examples in the book. This just made me read the examples over and over again until I...

Great book! Really helped...,
By A Customer
This review is from: Sams Teach Yourself Java 2 in 24 Hours (2nd Edition) (Paperback)I picked up a couple books on JSP and realized I needed to know more about Java. I didn't know anything... until I got this book.
Well written, worded for a novice, this book will teach you the skills you need to become independent in Java programming. I highly recommend it.
Rogers' sense of humor will crack you up as well. It was a pleasant and informative book. I highly recommend it.

Great Book For Beginners,
This review is from: Sams Teach Yourself Java 2 in 24 Hours (2nd Edition) (Paperback)I looked in to many Java 2 books before making this selection.
You may ask why did I choose this book out of all the others? When making purchase I always have three determining factors, How well is this book written? Will I want read this book? (Will it keep my attention long enough to actually be worth what I paid?) And finally price.
This book met all these criteria's quite well. Rogers explains topics with a pleasant sense of humor. And you actually understand what he's talking about.
This book is relatively cheap... you defiantly get your bang for the buck.
THIS BOOK IS PERFECT FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO KNOW WHAT Java 2 IS ALL ABOUT!
I definitely recommend this book.
