  1. Review by Katrina Howard for Java Programming: Introductory Concepts and Techniques, Third Edition (Shelly Cashman Series) Rating: I bought this book in hoping to learn Java programming; instead I found a book that DID NOT explain the fundamental aspects of java programming in a clear and in an understandable format for a beginner. After reading the introduction chapter, I was confused by the author’s explanation of simple OO terms. But I let it pass, since I thought the important aspect was knowing how to create components and codes for java. I was wrong; I should have returned the book back after reading the first chapter.After going through the first few exercises in beginning chapters, I was unable to complete the supplementary labs since these labs were completely irreverent to the chapter exercises(There are no solutions in this book for the Test Your Knowledge, In the Lab, and Cases and Places- a section devoted to producing labs on your own). In the Case and Place section, the authors want the beginner reader to create some labs after every chapter on their own. They only provide a case scenario but they DO NOT help the reader produce these labs by providing a solution or step by step instructions in the back of the book if you get stuck(which WASTE a lot of your TIME and makes your head spin).These labs are completely IRRELEVANT in their designated chapters since the authors ask you to create components and programs that they DID NOT TEACH you in the previous chapters. Furthermore there are no solutions for these labs.The explanations of the programming terms and coding are NOT clear and are NOT understandable; rather it was CONFUSING and VAGUE. The authors did NOT properly explain all the programming terms AND coding in a comprehensible language. Furthermore, this book did NOT SHOW the new programmer how to develop simple components in an understandable format, so the readers would be able to implement these components in their future programs.This book is more of a SUMMARY than introducing a beginner to java programming. It seems to me that the authors expected that their reader must have some experience in java programming or needed a refresher in this language prior to purchasing this book. This book DOES NOT MAKE THE READER FEEL CONFIDANT IN learning, coding, and implementing java programming, rather it makes YOU FEEL VERY STUPID. You would be WASTING your MONEY and TIME if you purchased this book! This is one of the worst Java programming books that I purchased.
