Components of the Package:
Addison-Wesley's Java Backpack Reference Guide
By Peter DePasquale
Java How to Program: Late Objects Version, 8th Edition
By Paul Deitel
This package contains Java How to Program: Late Objects Version, 8e, and Addison-Wesley's Java Backpack Reference Guide.
The Deitels’ groundbreaking How to Program series offers unparalleled breadth and depth of object-oriented programming concepts and intermediate-level topics for further study. This survey of Java programming contains an optional extensive OOD/UML 2 case study on developing and implementing the software for an automated teller machine. The Eighth Edition of this acclaimed text is now current with the Java SE 6 updates that have occurred since the book was last published.
The Late Objects Version delays coverage of class development until Chapter 8, presenting the control structures, methods and arrays material in a non-object-oriented, procedural programming context.
Addison-Wesley's Java Backpack Reference Guide provides a quick reference to Java's most frequently used keywords and APIs. It is clear and easy-to-use, integrating syntax examples, keyword descriptions, and programming tips in a way that will make it the must-have reference in your backpack. This inexpensive reference provides a lot of information for the introductory and intermediate programming student or someone who just wants the specifics of Java in one handy place.
