  1. Review by D. Zimnox for Java Programming: Comprehensive Concepts and Techniques, Third Edition (Shelly Cashman) Rating: I have a shelf full of Java books ranging from broad beginner topics to specific, more advanced concepts. This book is part of the coursework for an intro to java college class. It’s a typical intro book to the subject and it does cover the material fairly well. However, what kept me from rating this a 4 star were the typos. Unless you’re already familiar with java, some of these errors can cause great confusion.

    Chapter 4 demonstrates a try catch block, coded as the following

    catchthe Math.P(NumberFormatException e)

    Where did the “the Math.P” come from?

    Chapter 5:

    example: frame.isResizeable(true);

    It spells Resizable like that twice on the same page. Secondly, that method returns a boolean and has no parameters. This alone cause classmates much trouble.

    Can’t wait to finish reading this book to see what other grand mistakes I can find.

  2. Review by Paul A. Hernandez for Java Programming: Comprehensive Concepts and Techniques, Third Edition (Shelly Cashman) Rating: I got this for a class that I had over Java. The book that the class used was terrible at explaining things and the instructor wasn’t much better because Java wasn’t his main language. This book helped explain the basics even thought I’m not a big fan of Java because it is the slowest language I think I have ever used. Definitely not for programs that require any kind of speed…

  3. Review by M. Lefferson for Java Programming: Comprehensive Concepts and Techniques, Third Edition (Shelly Cashman) Rating: I should have bought a cheaper book from another reseller. For the price Amazon is selling this for I expected a shrink wrapped new book. But what I received was warn and not in “new” condition. It wasn’t a shipping problem. The CD was in it and it is in otherwise good condition. But for the price I expected better from Amazon.
