This text is intended for a 1-semester CS1 course sequence. The Brief Version contains the first 18 chapters of the Comprehensive Version. The first 13 chapters are appropriate for preparing the AP Computer Science exam.
For courses in Java Programming.
A fundamentals-first introduction to basic programming concepts and techniques
Designed to support an introductory programming course, Introduction to Java Programming and Data Structures teaches you concepts of problem-solving and object-orientated programming using a fundamentals-first approach. Beginner programmers learn critical problem-solving techniques then move on to grasp the key concepts of object-oriented, GUI programming, data structures, and Web programming. This course approaches Java GUI programming using JavaFX, which has replaced Swing as the new GUI tool for developing cross-platform-rich Internet applications and is simpler to learn and use. The 11th edition has been completely revised to enhance clarity and presentation, and includes new and expanded content, examples, and exercises.
Also available with MyLab Programming.

I'd go with the 10th edition
I had a copy of the 10th edition, and I was hoping to see something new in this one. I was comparing version 10 to 11, and it's essentially the exact same book (same wording, same problems), but also with some questionable changes. Everything in the 11th edition is EXACTLY the same as the 10th edition, except for one added chapter possibly, I can't quite remember (I can't check now because I returned it). However, if you compare the page count of 11th edition to 10th edition, you'll see that the 10th edition has over 100 pages more than the 11th edition. That's because they took out something like 3 or 4 chapters from the physical book, and put them online to Pearson (at least in the copy that I received). I really don't like this, because I like everything in a physical book, not in a digital subscription that would expire in a year.
To the publishers of this book: Can you PLEASE put every single chapter, including all those more advanced Java ones that are digitally on Pearson now, in a physical book?

This is one of the best beginner programming books out there
By Amazon Customer
This is one of the best beginner programming books out there, It will take you from a Rookie to an Advanced Level. I took a few months and went through the book (10th ed, pretty much the same) and got really good at Java programming. You can see Dr. Liang's effort in crafting the book and it is particularly tailored for beginners (no previous experience assumed). I believe students use this as a University Textbook, But this book is for anyone who wants to understand programming (the basics) from First Principles. Take the time to try out each example in the book and you wont regret it. Thanks to Dr. Liang for this amazing gift to the world.
