Whether you’re already adept at Java or new to it, you’ll appreciate the Java Primer that’s thoughtfully included. The two-color design makes it easier for you to navigate through the chapters, and a plethora of examples, programming exercises, and supplementary online tests and exercises (available through WileyPLUS) help you absorb and reinforce what you’ve learned.
