Java™ Programming: Guided Learning with Early Objects 1e
ISBN-13: 9781423901624 / ISBN-10: 1423901622
This innovative new text, intended for the beginning programmer, introduces objects early but gently and includes a variety of examples and exercises intended to support each new concept. With a clear emphasis on self-study and the student learning experience, Malik and Burton employ a straightforward writing style that parallels the learning method of the contemporary CS1 student. Before a key topic is introduced, the student learns why the concept is important, and then sees examples. Java Programming: Guided Programming with Early Objects is an invaluable resource for all students, both in and out of the classroom.
