9780071269674: Introduction to Programming with Java

This book teaches the reader how to write programs using Java. It does so with a unique approach that combines fundamentals first with objects early. The book transitions smoothly through a carefully selected set of procedural programming fundamentals to object-oriented fundamentals. During this early transition and beyond, the book emphasizes problem solving. For example, Chapter 2 is devoted to algorithm development, Chapter 8 is devoted to program design, and problem-solving sections appear throughout the book. Problem-solving skills are fostered with the help of an interactive, iterative presentation style: Here's the problem. How can we solve it? How can we improve the solution?

Some key features include:

-A conversational, easy-to-follow writing style.

-Many executable code examples that clearly and efficiently illustrate key concepts.

-Extensive use of UML class diagrams to specify problem organization.

-Simple GUI programming early, in an optional standalone graphics track.

-Well-identified alternatives for altering the book's sequence to fit individual needs.

-Well-developed projects in six different academic disciplines, with a handy summary.

-Detailed customizable PowerPointTM lecture slides, with icon-keyed hidden notes.

""The authors have done a superb job of organizing the various chapters to allow the students to enjoy programming in Java from day one. I am deeply impressed with the entire textbook. I would have my students keep this text and use it throughout their academic career as an excellent Java programming source book." - Benjamin B. Nystuen, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs"

""The authors have done a great job in describing the technical aspects of programming. The authors have an immensely readable writing style. I have an extremely favorable impression of Dean and Dean's proposed text." - Shyamal Mitra, University of Texas at Austin"

""The overall impression of the book was that it was "friendly" to read. I think this is a great strength, simply because students reading it, and especially students who are prone to reading to understand, will appreciate this approach rather than the regular hardcore programming mentality." - Andree Jacobson, University of New Mexico"
