It was a good book. It's helpful for CSS 161 where we designed a rocket(Part III: Controlling the Flow, Chapter 13: Creating Loops within Loops, p.265). It's also helpful to most other intermediate and beginning programming classes. It helps with the overall picture of computers and programming using a language such as Java(Part I: Revving up, Chapter 1: Getting Started, p.9)

Java programming is made simple with this book. It's about telling a computer what to do. This book provides the basic information on how to create your first few programs and much more. For example, the first part has instructions on how to install Eclipse, and the definitions of source code, byte code, object code, and compiler. In part 2 they discuss that numbers are the same as values, and go in detail about Java's primitive numeric types(Part II: Writing your own Java Programs, p.69). Part 3 has the switch statement, and some things about creating loops within loops for CSS 161(Part III: Controlling the flow, p.169). Additionally, mentioned in part 4(Part IV: Using Program Units, p.301) are some things you need to know about methods. The last and final part provides additional information and web links of helpful tutorials for further research(Part V: The Parts of Tens, p.405). This book was very helpful for me.
