I Love This Book


Just because one is an expert at a given subject does not mean they make the best person to teach it. Aaron Hillegass is in a group of those few rare individuals who knows the subject and can help the reader to better understand it. His book is a well written and thought out tutorial that has been tested and refined by actual teaching conditions. If you haven't had the pleasure of attending Big Nerd Ranch then this is the next best thing. Don't think about it...just buy the book!

Excellent for Beginners


This book is perfect for my students. It presents the concepts in small simple steps. It introduces graphics early on so that the students can appreciate their work. Events are covered early on too so that they can create interactive software. (This first edition covers Java 1.0 event model. The second edition -- sold in Europe is even better -- it covers the Java 1.1 & 1.2). Objects and inheritance are covered in a timely manner. My students find this book clear and straight forward. By the end of the book all major features are covered -- including threads and exceptions. This book is not a complete reference book and is better for it. Once my students understand what's going on I send them to reference books to find out all the intimate details. This book is just right for beginning high school students with no programming experience. Job well done.
PS -- if anyone is interested I have lecture notes and theory quizzes that I could share with others.

Great book


There's no way you will read through this book and find yourself less prepared for the game. It's written in an easy style, with a tendency to hide major plot points, and all the information needed to beat the game lies herein.
The only problem is, it's all over the place.
In the end, my wife and I ended up using a series of Post-it notes and envelopes and several times in the game we both had to consult the book to find out how to continue onwards. Rather frustrating.
