Where to begin?

Me and an associate wrote our business plan using this book as our reference. Neither of us had any experience writting a business plan and didn't know where to begin. This book helped us get off the ground in no time. If your new to writting business plans or you're just not sure where to begin, this is the book for you.

Great reference, learning guide, and prep tool

This is an excellent text to learn Java from. I have studied Java in my spare time for years and come from a Visual Basic background and I don't know C or C++. I hope to write the exam early next year. Notice the many charts and diagrams in this book. For example, the charts for the collection classes, which show how each collection and their interfaces relate to one another, along with their differences. The same goes for the section on inner/outer public/private classes. Without these charts I would find the different combinations very difficult to keep track of. The examples are very uncluttered relative to many I see in books, and I can't find any errors either. The only thing I found is the large amount of text describing the concepts is initially very difficult to follow. However, if you jump ahead a bit and practice many hours with the examples you find yourself later reading the text and slowly comprehending all of it. I am very happy with this book as a reference, a learning guide, and an exam preparation tool.

Definitely a must for any budding OO developers.

Generally computer langauages are taught with too much emphasis on syntax, rather than the semantics.
This book helps to illustrate how an object oriented language's behaviour can be used to solve problems at a higher level of abstraction.

not very good

I am aiming for MCAD, this is the last exam that i will have, the book is not very good in explaning windows form and controls, it is too brief, I have to read lots of examples in the internet. The other things are OK..but not very good still..
You need a lots of supplement reading,
actually, i buy the 70-320 book with the same author, the book only covers 60% of the exam, I think this boo, too
