Hello, Barry.  Welcome to the ranch.  You know, the very title, "For Dummies" implies that we have people just dying to learn this stuff, and that you have dropped the barriers for entry.  That makes for growth in use of the language.  I think that's a very good thing.

Welcome, Barry Burd.

I have failed Java the last 2 semesters I took it at my local community college and am signed up for a 3rd semester this coming fall. D: I am desperate! Forget winning your book, I am buying it right now and working through it this summer in the hope it will help me break through. Thank you for reaching out to those of us who are finding the language hard to grasp.

Gail,
My newest edition has exercises for you to work through. If you persist in trying them, you're bound to learn a lot. Above all, don't study by only re-reading the material. If you keep writing code, you keep improving your skill. You make a lot of mistakes and you learn from your mistakes. It works for you no matter what format the exams are.

Barry, thank you so much for your quick reply! I had already purchased your Java 7th Edition direct from the publisher, Wiley. I appreciate the link to the second book and your encouraging words. I am absolutely working through your exercises.

Gail, If you have feedback about the exercises, I'd appreciate hearing it. This is the first time I've put exercises in one of my "For Dummies" books and I want to make sure that they're the right level of difficulty.
