Great beginner level book!, July 7, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from Ohio, USA
I'm not sure what the other reviewer was looking for, but for a beginner-level book (which is the purpose of 21-day books), I thought this book was fantastic! I had zero experience using Visual J++ and within a couple of days got up to speed and was writing applets. What more can one ask for? As far as I'm concerned I got exactly what I wanted: a book that got me up and running without a lot of fluff. Now when I'm a little more comfortable with the basics that this book presents, I'll move on to a more advanced book. Like I said. Exactly what I would expect from a 21-day book.
Good Book for Visual Basic/C++ Programmers, October 17, 2001
Reviewer: Jayson Speer from Levin New Zealand
As a C++/Visual Basic Programmer, I found this book very handy.
If you do not already understand the fundamentals of OOP (Object Oriented Programming) then you will struggle a little as it does not thoroughly cover:
- Concept of Classes/Objects.
However, if you already understand these concepts (such as I did), then you will fly through this book with little or no trouble.
This book takes you from beginner to an intermediate level whilst covering the following topics:
- Applet & Application development.
- Use of Dialogs & Standard Controls.
- Graphics & Image Processing.
- Multi-threading & Animation.
- Exception handling.
- I/O Streams.
All examples are easily understood and fairly well explained.
Just don't expect to become a professional programmer from reading this book.
You will however be able to move onto a more advance book.
I'd give this book 0 stars, but the form won't let me!, April 30, 2000
Reviewer: A reader from Minneapolis, MN
There is little I can say that is positive about this book; I learned one thing about creating a Windows application from it, but otherwise it was wretched. I'll never buy another 21 days book; I didn't have to pay for this one, thank goodness, because it was provided to me as an instructor for a course I was teaching. My students were furious with the quality of the examples, the typos, and the sheer lack of worthwhile content in this book, and it would have been the class from hell if I hadn't found a better text to get examples from. Personally, I would recommend Y. Daniel Liang's book, "Introduction to Java Using Microsoft Visual J++ 6" as a superb text; that is the book my institution is using for next quarter after all the complaints we got on it. If you want to learn any language, here is my advice: Buy a book that teaches the LANGUAGE, not the tool; the tool is largely irrelevant, and with the Visual Studio you will never learn anything if you let the IDE write all your code for you. The tools are nice later on, but get in the way of a beginner.

Reviewer: ravenmocker from Ohio
I had used other 'Teach yourself' something 'in XX days' before and liked them. I sure got fooled with this one! Avoid this book unless you are already comfortable working with J++. The examples are confusing. It rambles. It presents bits and pieces but never gives you a solid foundation. I really regret buying this book.
