Hi,

I have completed the 1st and 2nd chapters from the link you provided. The book is nicely written and fundamentally very strong. The 1st and 2nd Chapters are really impressive. The way, the background and basic programming concepts are explained are really thrilling. The book is written very carefully, especially where it elevates a novice to a Object Oriented Programmer very seamlessly and smoothly. I don't have any Question regarding the book. I have already posted my question here but got the answers after reading the chapters in the book.

Thanks & Regards

Could you please provide the link for reading the sample chapters?? I have cleared SCJP, but some basic java concepts still elude my understanding.

Thanks.
Sid

Thanks. I superficially went through the chapters and they seem really well explained, with examples and all.
Kudos to Mr. Mughal.

This book seems to introduce someone to both programming concepts as well as java fundamentals. Its pretty well written, well explained and has a sleek look. Something like a head first java thing but the book seems to be lurking more on the fundamentals of java. A little bit of UML here and there and a section that explains it as well. The only thing that I would change is the windows command prompt. I would replace it with something generic like only the terminal or some tips on how to run this on Linux and Mac. Good job overall

Looks like we missed in making the command prompt generic, but we worked hard to make the book tool and platform independent. If you have the JDK installed, then you are all set to use the book.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
