BEGINNING JAVA is a self-study or instructor led tutorial consisting of 10 chapters explaining (in simple, easy-to-follow terms) how to build a Java application. Students learn about project design, object-oriented programming, console applications, graphics applications and many elements of the Java language. Numerous examples are used to demonstrate every step in the building process. The tutorial also includes several detailed computer projects for students to build and try. These projects include a number guessing game, a card game, an allowance calculator, a state capitals game, Tic-Tac-Toe, a simple drawing program, and several non-violent video games. We have also included several college prep bonus projects including a loan calculator, portfolio manager, and a checkbook balancing application to get you ready for college.  This tutorial is appropriate for beginning High School Students.

BEGINNING JAVA is presented using a combination of over 400 pages of color course notes and actual Java examples. No programming experience is necessary, but familiarity with doing common tasks using a computer operating system (simple editing, file maintenance, understanding directory structures, working on the Internet) is expected. This course requires XP, Vista, or Windows 7.   If you are using Windows 8 and above, please purchase the 8th Edition of this Textbook tutorial.   To complete this 7th Edition Java tutorial, you need to have a copy of the free Java 7 Development Kit installed on your computer. This tutorial also uses JCreator as the IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for building and testing the Java applications. The Java source code and all needed multimedia files are available for download from the publisher's website (KidwareSoftware.com) after book registration.

Review:

"Beginning Java is one of THE BEST step by step instruction guides to learning Java. I was a C programmer and bought this book to teach myself Java. It was money well spent as I have kept it on my desk as a Reference guide." - Sherine Grant, IT Specialist

"My 14 year old son used the Beginning Java For High School Students course in the past semester, and we found it to be time and money well spent. He has gained great exposure to basic Java concepts and capabilities over the past 3 months. We will definitely use products from your company again in the future!" - Kirk Rasbury, Forney, TX

"Having used Kidware Software tutorials for the past decade, I have to say that I could not have achieved the level of success which is now applied in the variety of many programming environments which are currently of considerable interest to kids! I thank Kidware Software and its authors for continuing to stand for what is right in the teaching methodologies which work with kids - even today's kids where competition for their attention is now so much an issue." - Alan Payne, Computer Science Teacher, T.A. Blakelock High School
