Object-Oriented Programming in Java: A Graphical Approach, Preliminary Edition by Andy van Dam,Kathryn E. Sanders



Andy van Dam and Kate Sanders do a great job of hitting Objects first-teaching OO early and letting the procedural stuff come along naturally. I have seen a number of texts that claim they do this, but I haven't seen anyone who does it like these authors d. -Ben Shaffer, University of Northern Iowa. The author of the book, Dr. Sanders, was my professor for introductory Java. She explained topics fairly well, but the book was not too useful. This book is a bit confusing for use in an introductory course. It's rather wordy and can raise more questions than answers. I believe it would be best used for an intermediate/ advanced course.

Kathryn E. Sanders, Rhode Island College. Andy van Dam, Brown University. This first truly innovative introduction to Java programming by world-renowned teacher and computer scientist Andy van Dam and Kate Sanders brings realistic, object-oriented programming to the forefront. This early foray into object-oriented programming, not simply objects, from encapsulation through polymorphism supports the real-world applications of Java and enforces good, structured programming habits that will stay with students for a lifetime

Object-Oriented Programming in Java: Kathryn E. Sanders, Andy van Dam summary. 12 File type: PDF 640 pages. A bit much for an introductory Java course; could be simper & more to-the-pointBy JMHThe author of the book, Dr. Programming fundamentals are learned through visually appealing graphics applications in all examples and exercises. Introduction of object-oriented concepts from the beginning including objects, classes, polymorphism, inheritance, and interfaces.

It covers all important object-oriented programming mechanisms at the beginning of the book - from encapsulation through inheritance, interfaces, and polymorphism. It uses numerous executable examples to teach modularization and other good programming habits that will stay with students for a lifetime

Using an object-oriented approach, this book teaches introductory programming concepts. The first six chapters teach all of the primary object-oriented concepts, including virtual methods and polymorphism. the authors build programs from a library of objects. It encourages the re-use of objects and covers the development of classes and methods.

Programming in Java: A Graphical Approach. Addison Wesley, 2006. Object-oriented programming (OOP) is one of the most prevalent techniques of programming now. OO principles are also widely used in comprehensive software including user graphical interface. Although the benefit of early teaching OO concepts is advisable, it meets variety of difficulties and as a result no general consensus on this subject exists. The present paper by virtue of OOP instruction analysis proposes to include OO foundations as a topic into the school informatics course.

This book has a strong focus on object-oriented design and gives readers a realistic experience of writing programs that are systems of cooperating objects. Programming fundamentals are learned through visually appealing graphics applications in all examples and exercises. Introduction of object-oriented concepts from the beginning including objects, classes, polymorphism, inheritance, and interfaces. It fully embraces Java 5.0 topics including the standard scanner class and makes extensive use of graphical user-interfaces and real graphics applications. This book is appropriate for beginning programmers who want to learn to program with Java as well as experienced programmers who want to add Java to their skill-set.

The author of the book, Dr. Sanders, was my professor for introductory Java. She explained topics fairly well, but the book was not too useful. This book is a bit confusing for use in an introductory course. It's rather wordy and can raise more questions than answers. I believe it would be best used for an intermediate/ advanced course. Still, it was better than nothing to have as a reference.

It's a great book that teaches a lot about java. I also had a great professor so I can't say this book taught me everything I needed to know, but it covered all the important topics. I would recommend it for anyone trying to learn java.

Thank you for not ripping me off

Incredible book for learning , really good for learning and developing intuition in object oriented programming.
MrDog
its is difinitely a good book for a java learner or a new to java for first time. the books does not goes into detail for everything but its does a good enough job to get started.

Good introductory book. So I was the teaching assistant for a undergraduate course using this book. Before this, I only had 2 semester of java experience, 7 years ago in high school. This book is great for bringing me up to speed, and the students liked it because graphic approach is more fun than sorting words etc. It covers basic concepts like how to put stuff on the screen, loops, conditionals, arrays etc.

Pros: It have simple explanations with working code examples so it's easy to read. Too often do I see programming books with snippets of code that doesn't work, or have parts missing so you can't implement, or pseudo code. You can't learn a programming language without coding. This book have complete working code, and explains what the code means as well as the concept behind it in the text so you can follow along. Students with/without prior programming background were able to understand it.

The cons, ahh yes. This takes a graphical approach, so some of the things like interacting with user input (other than the mouse), data structures etc are touched only briefly. It does cover basic concepts like polymorphism, encapsulation etc so you know what they are, but don't dig deep into it. Also, there are numerous ways to implement a program, and some of the code in the book are not most efficient. But, overall it is a good book to get you started in Java but not if you already know the basics and want to be a serious programmer.

Dear Prospective Buyer,

I remember that this book was the choice for my Introduction to Computer Science course and I can tell you that this book is wonderful. The inclusion of the "Wheels" library allowed for us to immediately implement object-oriented programming from the start, which elucidated a lot of the logic of Java in the beginning. This book is also well written, and the simple examples really allow one to understand the simplest case of each concept, which then allows one to generalize more easily. I found this to be an awesome textbook, and it together with my professor have left Java indelibly built into my brain. I highly recommend this book.
Excellent book. I've had the honer of being in many of Prof. Sanders' classes at Rhode Island college. She is one of the best teachers I've ever had. Reading this book feels a lot like being in her classes. She makes java really easy and fun to learn. This is the first Java book, I've owned, and it's what I would recommend to anybody who wants to start learning Java, especially if it's your first programming language. Anyone can learn to code from this book
