Customer Reviews
Good for people who want to learn how to program!, March 20, 2002
Reviewer: Carlo R. Montoya from Cebu City, Cebu Philippines

I attended Sun Microsystems SL275 (their basic Java programming course for people with C and C++ backgrounds). One of my jobs was to write a courseware for high-school students. The course was not a good basis for a high-school level programming course. As such, I bought this book and it only took me a month to write the Java for High-School courseware. I ended up with a Street Fighter type game that needs to be completed by the students.

The author tends to discuss concepts that are a chapter or two ahead but I found this normal especially when it comes to Object Oriented Programming.
