Layered, Back-to-Basics Approach to Java Programming
Newly revised and updated, this Fourth Edition of Building Java Programs: A Back to Basics Approachuses a layered strategy to introduce Java programming and overcome the high failure rates that are common in introductory computer science courses. The authors’ proven and class-tested “back to basics” approach introduces programming fundamentals first, with new syntax and concepts added over multiple chapters. Object-oriented programming is discussed only once students have developed a basic understanding of Java programming. Previous editions have established the text’s reputation as an excellent choice for two-course sequences in introductory computer science, and new material in the Fourth Edition incorporates concepts related to Java 8, functional programming, and image manipulation.
