Good luck with the book.

Do you cover advanced topics such as recursion and closures in the book?

Is there a case study to accompany the lessons?

Thanks Kevin.

Take a look at the Table of Contents on Amazon. Closures is Chapter 11 of 13 in the book.

Cheers.

Hi Kevin,
As Kent wrote, we do cover closures in the book. We cover recursion briefly in the appendix.

We have one case study in the book (although it doesn't span the entire book, just two chapters): the battleship game (inspired by Head First Java!!).

But we plan on posting more of these to wickedlysmart.com very soon!!

Right, we definitely spend time on closures and treat it as an important topic. Recursion was left to the "things we didn't cover" (which ironically means we do cover it, just not in great detail). I will say that if you get through the book, recursion will be a incremental step to understand. Recursion sounds like a great topic for some additional online content.
