I am reading Java "How to program" by dietel 3rd edition as the new one is costly so is there a too much dfference between 7th and 3rd edition of the book?

The 3rd edition covers only the features of Java 1.2, while the 7th is about Java 1.6. The basics of the language are the same, but there are many differences in libraries. For example, the java.util.concurrency was added in Java 1.5 and you wouldn't know anything about it when you've done with the 3rd edition. I recommend you to buy a newer edition.

The 3rd edition will by now be severely out of date.
