hi authors,

copy from cover page.
Java Actually provides a thorough introduction to object oriented programming (OOP) and lays the foundation for covering more advanced OOP topics.


what are the advanced OOP topics were covered in this book? can you provide me some details. I already checked the Table of Content but i can't figure out in it.


Thanks,

Don't expect a first course book to provide you with everything about Java under heaven and earth. :-)
It an introductory book, and therefore devoid of advanced topics.
I did not realize that our TOC was so cryptic. :-)

Thanks for your explanation now I already get my answer in another thread.
This is what I am expected in advance topic of this book.

Threads are not covered. It is an advance topic. Try our Java certification book for that.


Thanks again,

Hello Sir,
What is new in this book which your previous books didn't cover? Please don't consider it as insubordination.

The Programmer's Guide is meant for Java programmer certification, whereas Java Actually is for a first course in Java programming.
Two different books with totally different focus.

I questioned because the Certification book covers topics other than those required to clear the certification exam.

I see your point. As you correctly pointed out, the Certification book covers more than the certification exam. It is supposed to provide a comprehensive coverage of Java fundamentals and prepare you for the certification exam. In Java Actually (the first volume) the focus is to provide an introduction to programming in Java. After reading Java Actually you have a sound basis for moving on to more intermediate and advanced topics.
