- Increased coverage of problem-solving: This edition adds practical, step-by-step illustrations of techniques that can help students devise and evaluation solutions to programming problems. Introduced within the chapters where they are most relevant, these strategies include
- Algorithm design (with pseudocode)
- Adapting Algorithms
- New author videos: Cay Horstmann provides mini-lectures on difficult concepts to help students understand the material more thoroughly.
- Optional science/engineering and business exercises: End-of-chapter exercises have been enhanced with problems from engineering and business domains. Geared to students learning Java for engineering or business/Information Systems majors, the exercises are designed to illustrate the value of programming in those fields. These exercises are divided between the text and the online book companion site.
- New and reorganized topics: All chapters were revised and enhanced to respond to user feedback and improve the flow of topics. A chapter on GUI (that was online only in the first edition) is now included in the printed book, while a chapter on data structures that was printed in the first edition is now an online chapter. New example tables, photos, and exercises appear throughout the book.
- Additional programming examples: The author has added many new programming examples both in the book and online on the book companion site.
- Presents fundamentals first
- o Java For Everyone takes a traditional path through the material, stressing control structures, methods, procedural decomposition, and arrays. Objects are used when appropriate in the early chapters. Students start designing and implementing their own classes in Chapter 8.
- Practice makes perfect
- o Before students begin to implement nontrivial programs, they need to have the confidence that they can succeed. This book contains a substantial number of self-check questions at the end of each section. Practice It pointers suggest exercises to try after each section, simple programming assignments, and a variety of online practice opportunities, including guided lab exercises, code completion questions, and skill-oriented multiple-choice questions provide ample opportunity for student programmers to practice what they are learning.
- A visual approach motivates the reader and eases navigation
- o Photographs present visual analogies that explain the nature and behavior of computer concepts. Step-by-step figures illustrate complex programming operations. Syntax boxes and example tables clearly present a variety of typical and special cases in a compact format. Visuals can be browsed by students prior to focusing on the textual material.
- Guidance and worked examples help students succeed
- o Beginning programmers often ask "How do I start?" and "Now what do I do?" While an activity as complex as programming cannot be reduced to cookbook-style instructions, step-by-step guidance is immensely helpful for building confidence and providing an outline for tasks at hand. The book contains a large number of How To guides for common tasks, together with additional worked examples and screencast videos on the web.
The book emphasises on the essentials as well as on effective learning. The end of chapter exercises are excellent in as much as they illustrate the value of programming in application. Any student who studies computer programming should use this book.
