MyProgrammingLab is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor.
Java: An Introduction to Problem Solving and Programming, 7e, is ideal for introductory Computer Science courses using Java, and other introductory programming courses in departments of Computer Science, Computer Engineering, CIS, MIS, IT, and Business. It also serves as a useful Java fundamentals reference for programmers.
Students are introduced to object-oriented programming and important concepts such as design, testing and debugging, programming style, interfaces inheritance, and exception handling. The Java coverage is a concise, accessible introduction that covers key language features. Objects are covered thoroughly and early in the text, with an emphasis on application programs over applets.
MyProgrammingLab for Java is a total learning package. MyProgrammingLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program that truly engages students in learning. It helps students better prepare for class, quizzes, and examsâresulting in better performance in the courseâand provides educators a dynamic set of tools for gauging individual and class progress.
Teaching and Learning Experience
This program presents a better teaching and learning experienceâfor you and your students.
The second edition adds new language features and end-of-chapter GUI sections that include animation. New chapters include an introduction to the Java Collections Framework and an in-depth treatment of recursion. Two new supplementary chapters on the bookâs companion website describe the JavaFX GUI platform.
Before diving into object-oriented programming (OOP) in Chapter 6, the second edition includes a âmini-chapterâ that describes how to write multiple-method programs in a non-OOP environment. Those who want to continue this theme can follow an optional âlate objectsâ approach by reading two chapters on the bookâs website before returning to OOP in Chapter 6. Some key features include:
â¢A conversational, easy-to-follow writing style.
â¢Simple GUI programming early, in an optional standalone graphics track.
â¢Well-identified alternatives for altering the book's sequence to fit individual needs.
â¢Well-developed projects in six different academic disciplines, with a handy summary.
â¢Detailed customizable PowerPointTM lecture slides, with icon-keyed hidden notes.
I have used the Dean and Dean book in my Introduction to Java Programming class for the past year. This is an excellent text and I am very happy with it. It is the only text that I have ever used that always gets positive comments from students on my class evaluations even though there is no question asked about the text. The chapters are well thought out and the coverage is complete. The progression from topic-to-topic is masterful, and the writing is exceptionally clear and at the perfect level for an introductory Java class.

Are you ready to start your career as a web developer but not sure where to begin?
This 4th Edition, is fully updated. Within its pages, you will find:
This is the third edition of the popular computer science textbook Java Methods. The book offers a thorough introduction to the concepts and practices of object-oriented programming in Java. It also introduces the most common data structures and related algorithms and their implementations in the Java collections framework.
Chapters 1-14 follow the syllabus of the AP Computer Science course. They will prepare you well for the AP CS exam. Chapters 15-18 on file input and output, graphics, graphical user interfaces, and events handling in Java will give you a better sense of real-world Java programming; this material also makes case studies, labs, and exercises more fun. Chapters 19-26 deal with more advanced data structures and algorithms. Chapter 27, Design Patterns, discusses more intricate aspects of object-oriented design and serves as an introduction to design patterns, and Chapter 28, Computing in Context, addresses the issues of creative, responsible, and ethical computer use.
The book follows four main threads: Java syntax and style, OOP concepts and techniques, algorithms, and Java libraries. As in the software engineering profession itself, these threads are interwoven into an inseparable braid.
Working through this book will not make you a Java expert right away, but it will bring you to the level of an entry-level Java programmer with a better than average understanding of the fundamental concepts.
