Customer Reviews
A poor book--poorly written and edited. Good exercises., August 7, 1998
Reviewer: Mark Wilden from Oakhurst, California

I've seen worse. And I'm actually reading it instead of simply tossing it in the trash. But that's the best I can say. The book is rife with typos, never a good sign in a computer book. There are factual mistakes as well, though usually these are obvious. It's actually two separate books by two different authors: one on Java and the other on the Visual J++ environment. The latter, irritatingly, is really about VJ++ 1.0, not the environment specified in the book's title. I found the exercises useful in learning Java. Answers are provided--just not always to the exercises as stated! In particular, I spent a lot of time trying to get a wait()/notify() exercise to work, only to find that the author apparently couldn't either. In that same exercise, the author candidly admits that he "dunno" why one part of his code is necessary. Bottom line: Don't buy this book. There must be better ones out there.
