A FIRST BOOK OF JAVA blends Gary Bronson's successful experience teaching introductory programming courses .

A FIRST BOOK OF JAVA blends Gary Bronson's successful experience teaching introductory programming courses with key elements students need to know when programming in Java. This includes coverage of objects - oriented programming, graphical user interfaces, and event driven programming. These topics are introduced to the students from day one and are developed throughout the text. Since these topics can be complex for the beginning student, Bronson gradually introduces the topics in Part I, while delaying more complex details until later sections.

Received this book in good condition. Thanks.

Where to begin? Well, that appears to be the same problem the author of this text suffered, and was unable to resolve. The presentation is a bit scattered, and the exposition is confused and confusing. The simpler points are beaten to death, while the more esoteric issues are left unclear.
Code snippets are repeated often "for convenience" (to save the reader flipping back a page, and coincidentally to add pages to the book), and many of the code snippets introduce very poor techniques, without cautioning that this is not the way to write real code.
It seems that the author can't decide whether the book is simply an introduction to the language, or a first book on programming in any language. Sadly, it doesn't succeed in either way. The review of basic types is stultifying to those experienced in writing code, yet inadequate to those with no prior experience.
If this were priced at the level of a "Dummies" book, it might be forgiven some of its shortcomings, but as it is intended for use in schools, and as I encountered it in a college-level introduction to Java, no forgiveness is possible.

The only reason I even bought this book was because my professor requires it for an intro to computer science class (which I'm only taking for a math credit). I may know a little computer science and be a bit advanced for this book, but this book is not a book for beginners, it's a book for stupid people who don't understand a thing.
Small concepts which only take a few words or a sentence to explain the author spends PAGES explaining. The author is so verbose. It's a pain to read and that's why I stopped reading it.
Also the example programs given in the book are often useless programs which do not reflect a real life application of arrays, objects, etc. I can't believe I paid $75 for this book. With that kind of money, I could have bought 3 REALLY good books from OReilly or something.
The other reviewer is correct. The author beats the reader over the head on some concepts and spends way too much time on esoteric details whcih are nonessential to the novice programmer anyway.
I only recommend this book to people who need something to put themselves to sleep with.

Not sure what the other reviewers have been reading. Overall, I think this is best text I encountered for an intro programming course. The author writes in a way that is concise and easy to understand. Further, it covers problem solving issues at a level that fits well for newcomers to programming. Bronson's coverage of input/output, is great.
