I learn by doing, not reading.  My problem with most programming books is they tell you stuff, but never ask you questions that force you to learn and apply what you were just told

Does your book provide problems to solve?

Hello Jim,

Yes! We take a constructionist approach to teaching, which means that we get you to learn by doing. Often, when learning something new, it is better to begin by doing something and afterwards learning what it meant. We have exercises and puzzles throughout the book. In many ways, the exercises are the spine of Head First books.

Thanks for the question.

D+D
