What the community says about Beginning Programming with Java For Dummies
- "This book was a great introduction to programming in general, along with Java. After finishing this book it was easier to jump into other learning materials for different languages. I'm now working on Python, and I feel like this book laid a good foundation.""I was looking to start programming. Stupidly, I chose Java to start with. It has been a grueling learning process, but using the Java for Dummies book has helped me learn at a quicker pace (even if I am still writing sloppy code)"
- "Okay, I know the name of the book might not motivate you, but trust me, itÃ‚Â´s a great option if you have never used Java before. I bought it and I must say I was impressed on how fast I was able to learn""This book looks good, I am a fan of the for dummies series. The comments tell me that If I am new to programming, which I am, I should be fine with this book."
- "Programming is a very interesting field since it pays six figures and offers a lot more flexibility than a lot of other career paths. But I didn't know where to begin to learn HOW to program, since I had no previous classes in programming before and it all seemed like Greek to me. I've read online that I should start with Java as the most basic programming language. This Java for Dummies book is great for the true beginner and got me started with the language so I was actually able to start working on my own projects! ""It might say for dummies but you still need to have a firm grasp on some basic computer terminology or you won't learn anything. So yeah it isn't for complete dummies it's for programming dummies.""I like the "For Dummies" series, so, though I know nothing about computer programming, this would be a good resource if I were. It's got really good reviews, lots of them."
- "When I started programming java and c++ I was looking for a book that would get into more depth, I have learned a lot of good stuff form this book. The only problem I had with it is the way its written...its great for a beginner...I understand that but I'm technically minded and I "get" technical stuff most of the time. This bounces around and tries to make it easier to understand which only made ME personally more confused on some pages."
