Code check

Code check, a Wiley-hosted online code evaluator, provides students with instant feedback whether they got the exercise right, or where they need to fix their code.

video solution

For code completion exercises that may be correctly solved in many different ways, a video solution presents author Cay Horstmann’s narrative of how he solved the problem.
