better books are out there (much better)

Core Java 2, volumes I and II, by Cay Horstmann and Gary Cornell, are much, much better in my opinion. Almost a joy to read in comparison to this book, which is painfully dry and boring. I had to use this book for a Java class and afterwards read the Horstmann and Cornell books and was amazed at how much better they are.

I also recommend getting Design Patterns Explained by Shalloway and Trott. They use java but don't assume that you're already an OO expert. And, as they say, learning design patterns early on is a good thing.

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

I don't usually write reviews, but I liked this book so well, that I wanted to share my enthusiasm. This book, while short and to the point, is packed with good information and great examples of how to really use CSS and how to create standards compliant Web sites. There is a really good reference section at the end, as well.

Excellent prep + great reference book

This book was part of the material I used to prepare for the CISSP exam. I recommend this book to anyone interested in an "all-in-one" book, it covers the ten domains and has enough detail to achieve basic understandig of the concepts of the topics covered, in case some of the these are new to you.

I use this book as a desk side reference, I find to to be complete and written in a very esay to read way, specially for the amount of information covered.
