Reges & Stepp, Building Java Programs: A Back to Basics Approach, 4th Edition | Pearson

Please try again later. This book is full of useful information, but sometimes I found the structuring a bit weird.


They would spend multiple pages showing you a way to do something, only to tell you that was the wrong way and then show you a different way. Also, through certain examples, they randomly stop explaining or completing the problem and don’t show you a final version. I learned most from the included online videos. Also, one time I dealt with Marty Stepp directly, and he was very terse and rude in his correspondence, for what it’s worth.

This book is overpriced. Personally, I find the chapter very difficult to follow along with because of the strange teaching methods the authors chose to use. They show tons of incorrect examples that don’t work. I suppose they think that by showing how a person might code something incorrectly you can learn from the mistakes but over all it is just really confusing when you are trying to follow along and learn.

Maybe if all that had been added at the end of chapters in a “common mistakes” section or something it would have been more readable for beginners. You only have access to the 3rd edition online which is useless if your professor is using this book because the pagination is completely different.

The eText app also doesn’t work on iPhones so if, like me, you were hoping to access the eText for reading while commuting rather than carry this beast of a book around, you are out of luck. As a third note I think that it is important to mention that the authors seem to have thought that including inappropriate cultural references to make the programming more interesting was a great idea and it was not a great idea. I had to actually buy supplemental books for my programming course just to be able to understand the material as this book was so confusing and unhelpful.

My wife is using this text for a required intro-to-programming class. I’ve been following along, and I’m not impressed: As far as pedagogy goes: For instance, there is a whole section on throwing exceptions I really didn’t think the exercises were quite right for teaching critical beginning-programming topics.

Overall I found the treatment of the content much too slow and superficial. I’d recommend Deitel and Deitel’s Java book instead.

It might err on the too-detailed side, but I prefer that. One person found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. They have DRM on this book so you can only have it on two devices.

So if you want it on your laptop, desktop and your iPad Normal kindle rules should apply!

Good book, but the DRM on it is super oppressive. Kindle is a great experience for readers, but whenever I see “e-textbook” as the format, I have reservations about buying, mostly because of my experience with this book. After reading on 2 devices, you will run into “License Limit Reached” Instead your only option is to unregister your devices and hope that does the trick.


Or, of course – you can buy another copy digital copy. Recommend getting a physical copy, skip the e-textbook. Physical copy – 4 stars, e-textbook – 0 stars. As a student in a University of Washington computer science class, I can’t speak to the experiences bulding people at other schools.

But I can say that, for people like me, this book works spectacularly. It matches well with Stuart’s style — his idioscracies, sense of humor, approach to internal style, and methods of problem solving. What you read here is just like what you eeges in lecture; this correspondence helps present a consistent message. You really feel that Stuart and Marty have control of their message. The book itself is well-written and helpful. It explains common errors for beginners and ways to solve them.

It gives students insight as to how to structure a program. It helps explain concepts using relevant analogies. At times the explanation does seem a bit superficial though; it seems to gloss over the fundamental concepts in favor of expedient programming solutions. The book also has a way of suddenly presenting blocks of code, which are dense and difficult to reyes through.

This isn’t the perfect book for learning Java. It just happens to be the perfect book for learning Java at the UW. This book has been a lot more helpful than my professor has been so far. It really goes into the right amount of details into some sections that can be really confusing. On top of that, I love that there are some “Common Programming Error” sections that show potential errors to expect and to explain why and how it is.

This is a great introduction into programming for me regess I would highly recommend this, even if the buyer isn’t taking a class as you could teach it to yourself if you’d like. There’s also the textbook’s website where you could see all the powerpoint slides and a great website to learn is called practice-it. See all reviews.
