Talk about Java Programming For Dummies

No Disk with it.
I like the "Dummies" series since it has helped me pass the GRE and learn HTML. However, I was incredibly frustrated with this book. I am so surprised that they published a book with so many errors. For example, the "Hello World" program had quite a few errors and for some reason appeared 3 times on the same page!
The worst part was the flow and format. I had to start on chapter 8 and begin reading backwards to understand the concepts introduced, but even then things were not explained clearly.
Its very rare when I give a bad review, but this one deserves 1 star just because of the numerous errors. To tell you the truth, I returned it the following day after buying it and haven't done Java since.
lets go baby
If you don't know how to program and you don't know Java, don't buy this book. Even though it says it's for "dummies" and explicitly says you don't have to be a programmer to use it, you do. The authors very clearly show you how to write the code, and then tell you it must be compiled. But they don't tell you how to compile it. I've combed the book, the appendix, the text covering what's on the CD-ROM, and the readme material on the CD-ROM. Nothing. Worse, I shelled out for the book as half of the two-volume Java 2 Toolkit for Dummies set. The simpler book, Java for Dummies, doesn't explain compiling, either, because it isn't about programming, but I checked. Java Programming for Dummies - 3rd edition, no less - says in its introduction that it's for people who "know a bit of HTML" and "may have written some macros." I can build an HTML page and I can record and alter MS Office macros, but I haven't a clue about how to compile code. A 90-day version of a Java writing-and-editing program called JBuilder is on the CD-ROM, but I've seen JBuilder, and it isn't simple to learn, particularly if you only have help files from the CD-ROM to consult. Besides, you shouldn't have to learn how to use a software program before you can begin to use a beginners book. I can't DO anything now, except go buy another book that actually explains how to write and use a Java program. The book also suffers from sloppy copy editing, usually just an annoyance, but in a beginners' book, a hazard. For example, it refers to Appendix A for instructions about the CD-ROM. There is no Appendix A. If you don't think that's a problem, remember what a snipe hunt is like for the victim.
I had high hopes for this book, after flicking through a lot of the Java books in the bookstore, this one really appealed to me because of the large text and nice diagrams. And while the book was pleasently easy to understand (most of the time), it just doesn't flow very well. I found that around page 130-140 I was finding out the stuff I was wanting to know within the first few pages. They also throw in a chapter on HTML in the most inappropriate place. This book seems VERY rushed, and this is obvious from the large number of errors. I was stuck on my code for a number of hours, before I got help from someone on IRC... they were like "uhh WHY does Switch always have a capital S?" and I replied "because this stupid book told me to *sigh*. Even the bonus pull-out "cheat sheet" that summarizes the whole book has at least one missing semi-colon. Trust me, get something a bit more... concise.
Probably would be better book on Java...if it was easier to follow along with and didn't have so many errors in the program listings. This is the main stumbling point of the book. I mean, if you were good with Java it might be better...[In a future edition], don't make as many errors and explain "Mind of the Programmer" notes better. Other than that, it is a very introduction to programming in Java.
I've never been able to read a book and learn. I've always had to goto a class and pay a lot of money to have someone teach me. For me, just reading a book doesnt help, until I starting reading this book. I've read the previous reviews and quite shocked at some of the responses, especially about the "not finding what I was looking for until the page 130". I thought 'Dummies' books were to start from the basic and work from there. I thought they were suppose to teach you as if you didnt know anything about the language. This book does that. It's the only book I've been able to read without yawning in boredom and getting next to nothing out of it. I'm very impressed with Java and I think David Koosis did an excellent job with this book, especially for someone who doesnt know much about Java programming. -Greg
This book is a prime example of a 'deadline' that had to be met (during it's production).
It's an obvious attempt to get the book quickly on to circulation in order keep up with other competitors, rather than understand the psychology of a 'novice' programmer.......................... (Looks to me it relied too much on the success/reputation of previous 'DUMMIES' books).
If you're learning to swim.. you'll suddenly find yourself in the deep end... & drown (without warning)!
If you currently lack confidence in your programming ability... you'll be lacking more after this.
Rather than seeking knowledge... you'll be FIGHTING IRRITATION !
Recommendation : 'Beginning Java' (by Ivor Horton) - fully restored my confidence.
this is a good book, however, the early chapters (esp. chapter 5) could be made a lot easier to understand. However, if you have just a little knowledge of other languages such as c++ and have access to a compiler such as visual J++ or java workshop, this book should come in quite handy to the beggining java programmer.
