Programming and Problem Solving with Java is an excellent resource for discovering Java as a first programming language. After introducing the very basics of programming, the text provides detail on Java syntax, semantics, classes and objects, and then continues with coverage of arithmetic expressions, selection and encapsulation, file objects and looping statements, and object oriented software design and implementation. With an unparalleled clarity of expression, the authors then introduce inheritance, polymorphism, and scope, as well as event-driven input and output, arrays, and recursion. Through the case studies, exercises, and programming examples, readers develop a secure foundation for future study, and a true understanding of what an object is, how it works, and what constitutes a well-designed class interface.
