Are you taking C208, the module on Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) or are you looking for a good reference book to prepare the coming Understanding Test? If you are, then I am recommending this book to you. In fact, this book is very much suited for the beginners to Java Programming as it contains the fundamental concepts, completed with explanations for the syntax and attributes which you may not have heard of. Refer to this book before and after your classes on Java Programming, I am sure this book will be a great help to you.
Basically, the topics include introduction to Java: expressions and data types; variables and assignment; selection and decision; if statements; repetition; methods; arrays and lists; one name for many data; recursion; objects and classes; data structure and generics, etc. Many of these topics will be covered during the OOP module. The explanation on each subject is very detailed. In addition, you can also work on the exercise at the end of each chapter and recap on what has been covered.
I have been using this book for module C208 and I find that the content is quite close to our school curriculum. One of my seniors, who has scored well for this module, recommended this book to me. So what are you waiting for? Drop by at the library and pick up this book today!
