  1. Review by mrynit for Introduction to Java Programming: Fundamentals First (6th Edition) (GOAL Series) Rating: good for a start into programming with no experiance. easy to read. the book is geared to an old JBuilder version but you can skip those parts. the book does lack quite a bit when it comes to class methods but that what the java docs are for. this book give a intro into graphics which is hardly given enough info. It also covers the basics of applets. i would suggest getting the larger verison of this book that has more on gui i/o and data structures.

    4 stars for easy reader basic info, and lacking more. you will need another book after this one.

  2. Review by A. Zaddach for Introduction to Java Programming: Fundamentals First (6th Edition) (GOAL Series) Rating: I’ve had some pretty bad expereinces with textbooks before, but this one was definitely one of the best that I’ve used.

    I already had some basic programming knowledge, so I can’t judge how well it explained the basic concepts, but it provided a very good introduction to a programming language that can be overcomplicated, cryptic, and difficult to use.
